Hi, i know the graphics cards that the xps 15 where not compatible with linux the last time i checked, but im wondering if that has improved? and if it would be "safe" to install ubuntu (just bought it :D)

Just wondering, what is the specs for the Dell XPS 15 you have?

I do sell those but I'm just curious, because there might be a difference of specs per region.

I believe all of the nVidia cards used in the laptop use nVidia Optimus technology - which does not really work at all in Linux - yet.

But there seems to be a promising software project out there called BumbleBee (http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2011/05/bumbleebee-brings-nvidia-optimus-gpu-switching-to-linux-users/).

yeah, exactly, all the hardware (to my knowledge) is compatible, except for the graphics cards
