Debian-news is about one simple thing - news about Debian GNU/Linux and the top free distributions based on Debian GNU/Linux.


Installing Ubuntu on a Dell Laptop has described the installion and configuration of Ubuntu on a Dell Inspiron.
The 4-page story begins here and it's nice to see that the author concludes that it's Dell that has to work on the issues, not the Ubuntu developers!


Overall, I am extremely pleased with the upgrade [from Hoary to Breezy]. My system has no hint of the brokenness that I have previously associated with OS upgrades. Perhaps the reason that I typically choose to reinstall rather than upgrade is my experience with broken systems after upgrading. As an aside, Ubuntu is an excellently usable Linux distribution. I use it every day as my primary desktop at work and rarely find myself wishing for more.
Overall, this is a great laptop. The price was extremely reasonable; it had the features I was looking for; and most features worked with little or no effort. Dell, however, has some room for improving its relations with the non-Windows community.
