Well I think it's a good thing.  I mean if someone saw Ubuntu in PC 
World and heard a bit about it and only had to spend say £20, if they 
got stuck then they could get the support they need to get up and running.

I'd like to think though that after the 60 days, or during the 60 days 
they were pointed towards other avenues of support such as the official 
forums or local Ubuntu teams.
