I don't know about adding windoze, I generally look for systems
non-contaminated by any part if it, as I think it a virus at best. Maybe you
could try running it in a virtual environment and stay a little safer. Most
Kubuntu systems connect easily to Linksys out of the box so I suspect Ubuntu
would too although it is less configurable.

Since you are comparing, I'd check into the laptops offered at
http://www.zareason.com/shop/home.php?cat=250 as they seem to offer higher
end specs for less money! You can pick your buntu flavor pre-installed and
tested, plus the super key has the Ubuntu logo!!
