Liam, the 'Ubuntu compatible' market might be a very useful
supplementary business line for them. I personally do not need a
preinstall nor any support, but as Gordon finds, I also would need a
verified Ubuntu compatible laptop at some time. I can do my own
install in a trice, but seeking out compat hardware is a hard task. I
hope it will be worth them considering? There is a significant gap in
the UK market here.They might get rushed off their feet!
