As for the retailer id suggest if they want to stock Ubuntu computers
that they email system76 too because if they really want they might be
able to become a reseller. I can ask the owner if they are interested
and see what he says. I can't see why it would be a problem, since it
would be the exact same as buying off the site except for they would
be ordering from the store.
