I've still not got round to installing 8.04 but I thought NDISWrapper was now part of the defualts and all you needed to do was insatall the windows driver and away you went. Not ideal but I believe the Ubuntu developers are trying to provide as clean a way round the problem as they can.

@Geeky - Dell do actually supply laptops with Ubuntu pre installed and will also ship server HW running RedHat so I don't think they are the worst by any stretch.

I accept it's not universal but it's more than just the 3 notebook models. As I said they are also providing in the server area. Yes, I would like to see universal support but compared to many they have at least started to make some effort. Try the budget makers that fill our electronics stores with low cost systems and see what luck you have there and compare it to Dell and all of a sudden they seem like nice people.
