Default Are Windows Drivers Included with Ubuntu? - 02-27-2009, 11:12 PM


I'm just wondering, I've heard that you get the Ubuntu disc which has all the drivers built into it. But do you get any other drivers or is it just pull those on the website if you choose to install XP?

I have a sinking feeling I should've just ordered it w/ XP to avoid the hassle of installation woes....

Can't say about right now, but when I ordered mine back in September, it shipped with the Ubuntu disc plus the Dell drivers DVD (which has the Windows drivers.)

If not, don't worry, all the drivers are downloadable from Dell support.
