That's interesting. The computer I bought obviously did not have this
OEM version, just a regular* Ubuntu install with an account already
created. I just added a new user account for myself, and deleted the
account the computer came with.
*Well, not quite regular. There was a degree of customization,
including several extra packages that aren't included in the usual
install, and a script I could run to get the non-free stuff all in one
go -- sort-of like Automix, I think, except it points to a special apt
repository the company I bought the computer from maintains.
