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.

Cheers!
Oh, yeah I thought so well I guess gaming...not like HARD to the CORE gaming but gaming nonetheless.

Did a little digging over at ubuntuforums.org and found this thread:
Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card - Ubuntu Forums
Which links to this walkthrough:
HOWTO: Use b43 driver with 14e4:4315 (Broadcom bcm4312 rev 01) - Ubuntu Forums

Hope that helps

Well i followed his advice and unfortunately its still not working wirelessly sadly enough :-( Too bad becuase it would be really nice to dual boot this with ubuntu and windows 7

HAHA! I got it! I had to enable the broadcom43 driver and once i did that it magically started working!
