Hardware, Embedded Systems Dell is getting ready to launch systems with Ubuntu Linux, but is not yet releasing details of the final specifications. However, the company did say on Friday that as well as a consumer version of Ubuntu, it had plans to launch a small-business version 'in the future'. After some confusion over Dell's Linux strategy, the company said it felt the need to clarify things. "I wanted to be clear that Dell does have plans to offer Linux to more consumers in additional locations outside the United States," said Dell's Lionel Menchaca, digital media manager.

That was still the way for me, to install widescreen resolution.

That's because you use old X.Org X11 packages. I did not have a problem with Fedora 7 and hp nx7300 (correct widescreen resolution was picked up automatically).
