  • “Starting today, customers in Germany, United Kingdom, France and now Spain can purchase Ubuntu 7.10 with built-in DVD playback on the XPS 1330n” — Good move by Dell, shipping Ubuntu on highly desirable hardware… Not yet in Australia though. :-(

    What are they using for DVD playback? Or do they mean the laptop has some hardware player built-in too?

    @Jan Schmidt: LinDVD, apparently.

  3. I’ve been using the latest Dell Inspiron 1420 with Ubuntu 7.10 pre-installed, and it’s one of the nicest laptops I’ve had so far. No config required to get anything working (that I’ve tried to use, at least), and the keyboard is the most responsive I’ve ever used (and they thankfully put Ctrl at the corner of the keyboard, and made it a decent size).

    Here’s to hoping this pilot reaches more and more of their hardware!
