Technically being free software anyone is allowed to preinstall Ubuntu. 
  In fact the latest version of Ubuntu has a really good OEM option so 
you can setup a machine, customise it how you like it (including any 
extra packages etc) and then set it up so on the next boot it asks the 
customer for their details.  This is a feature I really do like the look of.
