Do you already know if there will be a DE with new Intel Iris Graphics and i7 6560U?

That's awesome to hear! I seem to remember you've said that the drivers are in a directory (possibly debs) on the system. As long as I have a copy hove those drivers can I do a fresh install of 15.10 (or 16.04 when it's released) and just install those drivers?

The main reason for the fresh install is to enable whole disk encryption. Is it possible to enable whole disk encryption using the recovery image?

I'm told there are design limitations in dell-recovery/Ubiquity that prevent this.

Apologies if this question has an obvious answer, not sure how various regions are divided up. Are UK sales handled by the European team? If so, do you think you'll have some information on being able to order a Precision 5510 with Ubuntu tomorrow?

Thank you

Thank you so much for your reply, it was really helpful.  As I can't buy a DE model in the APR, nor buy recovery Ubuntu images, how does one financially support your linux work?
