    Interesting...it isn't a big-big deal really...just means HP's warranty's will now remain intact if you choose to use ubuntu over Windows.
    At the same time..this probably helps HP more than ubuntu.

    I gotta get a viable boot disc of Ubuntu....Windoze7 makes it next to impossible to burn one.

    I use Ashampoo Burning Studio 6 (Free), works like a charm even on Win 7.
    (Warning! If you decide to download and install it use the advanced option, not the recommended option, that way you can unselect all their "optional" bull shit. Thrust me on this one.) :evil:
