Installing Ubuntu 7.10

Today I installed Ubuntu 7.10 on two computers: my Dell Dimension 9200 and my friend’s Dell Inspiron 1520.

It looks like Ubuntu has taken a big step forward in hardware support. Installing Ubuntu, especially on recent hardware, has gotten much easier.

That’s all I can think of at the moment. If I come across anything else I will add to my list.

Nice to know that wireless works out-of-the-box on Dell 1520 with Gutsy! Thanks for sharing your experience :)

Try this for the intel blacklist worries:

I have Intel 965 and that did the trick.
