Dell has just posted an update that should take care of the annoying partition error in Ubuntu Inspiron Mini 9s that would cause systems with 8GB or 16GB storage to only have 4GB of formatted disk space. Run the update manager, install the patch, restart your system and voila, you have all the space you paid for. [Direct2Dell]
That would be pretty nice if Dell ever shipped my Mini Inspiron. I ordered it on October 2nd and it was supposed to ship on the 22nd, at which time I was told it was backordered and would ship on November 19th. I canceled my order and won't be doing business with Dell for quite some time.
