Ubuntu on Dell

Ubuntu Has Arrived By Popular Demand -- Dell are listening to their customers, and are now offering Ubuntu pre-installed. How's that for convenience? Although Dell are clearly on the right path, they appear to be somewhat confused about the details: for the desktop system, the video card is unfortunately still not supported by Ubuntu (proprietary drivers are required, as it's an nVidia card). Also, the description of the operating system for the desktop system as "Ubuntu with DVD playback" instead of simply "Ubuntu with an additional proprietary package" should be better explained. The picture included alongside the description "Integrated 7.1 Channel Audio" is also confusing, as it looks remarkably like a separate Creative Labs PCI card.
