It’s Pride month, so the world is a little more colorful thanks to the rainbow flags popping up everywhere. Here’s one place I didn’t expect to see a rainbow though: Google Sheets. In typical Google fashion, the feature is hidden as a bit of an Easter egg.

Dell Precision 5520 Developer Edition: An amazing Ubuntu mobile workstation

The transformation of Dell into Linux hardware maker is nothing short of extraordinary. It started in 2012, when Dell’s Project Sputnik started to offer Ubuntu pre-installed on specific developer-class laptops, like the Dell XPS series. Five years later, Dell is offering Ubuntu on an even broader array of PCs, including the gorgeous Precision series. Dell’s Precision 5520 Ubuntu is a capable machine, with looks to match.
