There is the opportunity to help the community if you feel that you want to. For instance, I am member of the documentation group with Ubuntu. I am also a Fedora Ambassador so there are many opportunities to help out there if you wanted too.
As for compatibility you will be able to run Ubuntu on virtually any hardware. New hardware will work fine with Ubuntu. Unless you have a very obscure piece of hardware I wouldn't worry too much.
Oh, yeah I thought so well I guess gaming...not like HARD to the CORE gaming but gaming nonetheless.
