Later this year there will be a possibility of releasing a Ultrabook by Dell which will be a Ubuntu-powered Ultrabook and this project is called “Project Sputnik”.
What would be the version of this Ubuntu powered Ultrabook, Ubuntu 12.04 or Ubuntu 12.10?
Project Sputnik: Ubuntu powered ultrabook by Dell.
Project Sputnik is a new developer laptop initiative between Dell's XPS13 Laptop and Ubuntu, a Linux Operating System.
This project will run the Ubuntu 12.04 LTS operating system as announced by Barton George in his blog.
1. Drivers and patches for hardware enablement
2. Key tools and utilities
3. Software management tool for github repository.
Project Sputnik is still in the planning stages; but if anything goes well, an Ubuntu Ultrabook from Dell may become available by the end of this year. Again, the Ubuntu-powered Ultrabook will use the Ubuntu 12.04 operating system.
Hope I answered your question well.
