Dell pushing Windows Software for Linux PCs?

Yeah, so this one doesn't make a whole lot of sense:

Dell has been trying to establish itself as a Linux vendor. In fact, I bought one of their Inspiron 530n workstations with Ubuntu 7.04 late last year.

So, since I'm thinking about getting a new PC and I'm perfectly happy with my 530N, I figured I would see about buying another.

So I go through the wizard for the Ubuntu PC, and run across the above page. Apparently they don't seem to understand what they are trying to sell or else they would not be offering Windows addon software for a Linux PC.

Why am I not surprised?
