Michael Hoffman says finally Dell ships Ubuntu.

Jason Calacanis, formerly of Weblogs, Inc. and more recently an Entrepreneur in Action at Sequoia Capital, will launch his newest startup, Mahalo.

“Mahalo is a search engine, and will join Powerset as the more interesting new engines to launch in 2007. The service has features that are similar to the new Netscape news finder product that Calacanis launched last year at AOL: expert guides will determine the most relevant results. The main search results are provided by guides (Mahalo employees), who find relevant results for search terms. User submitted results are also included.”
