Dell has released a custom "remastered" Ubuntu 7.04 installation CD ISO that can be used to install Ubuntu on an Inspiron 1420 or 530. The ISO automatically installs all of the drivers and fixes that are required to make Ubuntu fully functional on those systems.
Dell laptops with Ubuntu preinstalled currently ship with a regular Ubuntu 7.04 installation CD that can be used to reinstall the operating system from scratch after reformatting. Unfortunately, the default Ubuntu installation does not include the best drivers so dell has a new remastered custom ubuntu cd just for you.
The "remastered" installation ISO could also be used by Inspiron 1420 and 530 owners who didn't buy their laptops with Ubuntu preinstalled, but wish to install it themselves...

The Mythbuntu team is happy to announce the release of Mythbuntu Alpha 4. This release is also based on Gutsy and should be considered Alpha quality until final release. It is at a very usable stage, and sports bleeding edge packages.
IBM will join the OpenOffice.org community and contribute code and resources, the company announced today. IBM has been a major supporter of the Open Document Format (ODF) which originated at OpenOffice.org, but hadn't yet taken the plunge to help out with the development.

Mozilla Firefox is one of the most popular Web browsers around today. But what does the Mozilla team have in store for us along security lines? To find out, let’s take a look at the pre-release version of Firefox 3 (code-named Gran Paradiso 1.9 Alpha 7).
The latest Firefox 3 (code name Gran Paradiso) development release (nightly) includes the very important and expected ability to pause downloads and resume them across sessions, that is even after restarting Firefox.
Beagle support in Ubuntu has been less than stellar up until this point (across all releases), and unfortunately, the best that we can really hope for in the immediate future is acceptable.
Lenovo is choosing Linux distro for their laptops, vote for Ubuntu! More hardware vendors offer Ubuntu, better drivers and collaboration with Canonical to come.
