With 'Dell-buntu' yes.
Your best bet is to download and install either 8.04 or 8.10 from ubuntu.com -
And go from there. You will have to download or locate a few codecs - but it will be up to date with all the latest patches available. And you will have access to _all_ the different software packages available to the Ubuntu OS - not just the very few that Dell has seen fit to let you have.
I know it sounds harsh - but the promised (or inferred) support for the 8.04lts 'Dell' version never seems to have happened.
Installation is easy - and if you have any problems you can get help here or on the OS/Ubuntu forums
under the 'Dell Ubuntu Support' forum on the official Ubuntu boards.
Hope that helps.

thanks for the reply. In case anyone else stumbles across this post, I found this thread in the unix/linux forum that dealt with most of my questions: http://www.mydellmini.com/forum/upgr...on--t5473.html.
