Thumbs up Have you seen how cool BIOS update is on Dell computers?

No DOS, Windows or WINE required!

Guys, last week I installed BIOS utilities from Dell and it was amazing. Now update manager on fedora sees if there are any bios updates available for my dell dimension 4600i. If there are, it will download, and install, and, you don't have to reboot right-away. Whenever you reboot, that's when the new bios will take over.

If you have a dell computer you should definitely check it out.

I don't have many (maybe 1) Dells, but that is amazing, good news. Thanks for the heads up.
