> 27 News Troubleshooter: Woman blames Dell for missing online classes

> MCFARLAND (WKOW) -- Abbie Schubert paid more than $1,100 for a Dell laptop
> hoping to enroll in online classes at Madison Area Technical College, or
> MATC.
> But something stopped her: she bought an operating system for her computer
> she never heard of, Ubuntu.
> That's an operating system for your computer similar to Windows that
> contains Linux.  It's highly regarded among some people and extremely
> popular with certain circles of computer users because it's free.
> Schubert says she ordered her laptop online at Dell.com expecting to buy
> your classic bread-and-butter computer.
> She didn't realize until the next morning her laptop defaulted to the Ubuntu
> operating system.
> "It's been a mess," she said. "I regret ordering the computer."
> Schubert says she never heard of Ubuntu until learning that she accidentally
> bought it.  She called Dell the very next day and says the representative
> told her there was still time to change back to Windows.
> But she says Dell discouraged her.
> "The person I was talking to said Ubuntu was great, college students loved
> it, it was compatible with everything I needed," said Schubert.
> So she stuck with it.
> Later, she discovered Ubuntu might look like Windows, but it doesn't always
> act like it.
> Her Verizon High-Speed Internet CD won't load, so she can't access the
> internet.  She also can't install Microsoft Word, which she says is a
> requirement for MATC's online classes.
> As a result, with no internet and no Microsoft Word, Schubert dropped out of
> MATC's fall and spring semesters.
> She also says Dell claimed it was now too late to get Windows and any
> changes she made herself would void her warranty.
> "I'm extremely frustrated," said Schubert. "I wanted to get back to school,
> but I needed a computer to be able to do that."
> 27 News contacted Dell, but the company has not responded to us yet.
> However, we think we've helped her get back to school.
> Verizon says it will dispatch a technician to try to assist her accessing
> the internet without using the Windows-only installation disk.  Verizon says
> its high-speed internet does indeed support Ubuntu, but some advanced
> features and installation disks clearly don't work with Linux.
> MATC also says it promises to accept any of Schubert's papers or class
> documents using whatever software she has installed.
> Schubert's computer came with Open Office, a word processing software
> package that is compatible with Microsoft Word.  She says she wasn't aware
> it was compatible.  MATC promised to show her how to save documents in
> compatible formats so she could enroll in online courses again.
