Dell continues to tread lightly in the inviting waters of Linux with newly announced support for Ubuntu 7.10 -- AKA, Gutsy Gibbon. Available now in the US on Inspiron 530 desktops or Inspiron 1420 laptops. The new systems also include built-in DVD movie playback. Our friends in England, France, and Germany will get their Gutsy Gibbon fix later in the week but only on Inspiron 530 systems. So why the two month delay since 7.10's release? Dell says, "they take the time to do extensive testing on our systems to make sure that customers have as few issues as possible." Fair enough.
