Sorry, Sean, I couldn't have made it clear.

It's not the actual upgrading Ubuntu that I was commenting on, (no 
problem with that), it was the fact that, if the Ubuntu machine was 
pre-loaded with 7.10, would the warranty be void if I replaced it with 
8.04 almost immediately, then 8.10 in six month's time. It would be 
something I would check with the manufacturer if I bought a Ubuntu machine.

I was just "thinking out loud!"

Cheers

Keith
