Kubuntu rocks on Dell Inspiron E1705

Filed under
Ubuntu

I've finally installed Kubuntu in my Dell Notebook (a Inspiron E1705). It's just lovely. Kubuntu really "gets it"! It looks and performs great and its really easy to use.

The installer from the live CD worked great. It even set up my wireless network card (Intel one) without any issues. OK, yes, I had to manually add a few things here an there (such as 915resolution, a mapping for the media buttons, the SMP kernel, etc), but that did not take too long: altough I'm more of an 'rpm' guy, setting up the extra goodies was very, very easy and straight-forward just using EasyUbuntu and Adept or apt-get.

PC-MOS/386 was first announced by The Software Link in 1986 and was released in early 1987. It was capable of working on any x86 computer (though the Intel 80386 was its target market). However, some later chips became incompatible because they didn't have the necessary memory management unit. It had a dedicated following but also contained a couple of design flaws that made it slow and/or expensive to run. Add to that the fact it had a Y2K bug that manifested on 31 July 2012, after which any files created wouldn't work, and it's not surprising that it didn't become the gold standard. The last copyright date listed is 1992, although some users have claimed to be using it far longer. Read more
