I like that they ship Ubuntu CDs by default with their computers.

I'd get one, except the price seems a bit steep for what you get, and
the website looks really sketchy.  I have no confidence that they
actually *tested* Ubuntu, and I suspect they're just dropping a free
CD with commodity hardware.
