Over at the Dell blog [Direct2Dell] they have announced the release of their remastered Ubuntu 7.04 ISO image, which includes support and fixes for their Inspiron 1420 and 530 models of computer systems. This release was based on community feedback which further indicates Dell is listening after all. On their site they state:

Based on community feedback, we have created remastered Ubuntu 7.04 CD media to help with installing the OS on the Inspiron 1420 and 530. This media includes the drivers and fixes necessary to get the OS up and running with supported hardware on those systems. For example, this media takes care of all of the steps identified here to get the OS installed on the Inspiron 1420. Please try this out, and let us know how it works.

If anyone has one of these systems with Ubuntu pre-installed and you try the remastered image, it would be nice if you could let us know how it works for you.

Comments welcome.
