There are many things that "should" work but don't...   ;-)

Anyway, I don't see how it would be useful to drop people into a 640x480
screen and then ask them whether they want to install better drivers,
because in that case it's their only option to use Ubuntu as a desktop
OS (640x480 is too small for many Ubuntu programs and configuration
panels to fit on the screen).
