I seem to recall the blue i button helped out with this after you
installed. That's how I found out about FLOSS vs proprietary. in my case
I like the fact that it's not installed by default not because of
licence but so that I get a feel as to how much proprietary I'm letting

BTW ever since I have installed ubuntu natty I have stopped having
problems with wireless of my aspire one clogging up the my home network
in some strange way. So that might be a reason to keep up latest version
of ubuntu and no stick to LTS.
