Does Ubuntu auto install drivers? Most of the time, Ubuntu will automatically have drivers available (via the Linux kernel) for your computer’s hardware (sound card, wireless card, graphics card, etc.). However, Ubuntu doesn’t include proprietary drivers in a default installation for a number of reasons.
Can Linux run on Dell? Most Dell laptops work right-out-of-the-box with all major Linux distributions, and Dell even sells a line of Linux-ready machines with Canonical and Red Hat certification.
