There's always a trick...

I do wonder how much something like this would cost us to do. It's
perfectly possible (and acceptable - taking into account running
costs) for the store to charge for any CD we could provide.  What
would be the thought of providing free software (Firefox, etc.) rather
than Ubuntu specifically in this sort of vein:

Would we really want to provide Ubuntu unsupported - I'd feel there
would be too many opportunities for mistakes and damage to computers.
Free software for Windows however - one step at a time... Of course
this is not a big-store-only thing.
