Yes, the installation instructions and system requirements are both
different for UNR compared to the desktop.

Note that UNR requires that the system's 3D graphics processor be compatible
with Ubuntu.  I'm not sure if we have a list of compatible 3D chipsets
anywhere, but this is definitely a notable requirement.

It might be a good idea to provide the list of known working models here,
which are included in the release announcement.
