    With minimal effort, Canonical now has a way to see how well Ubuntu works on many more systems and types of hardware than the company’s employees could ever test personally. At the same time, users are exposed to a novel means of engaging with Ubuntu and feeling like part of the community by offering valuable contributions to Ubuntu developers. It’s a win-win.

    Exactly, on most laptops with Sandy Bridge, running Ubuntu is a nightmare thanks to crappy BIOS issues whereas on System 76, Toshiba and few others, its a dream, this certification will bring peace to those who wish to buy hardware that will work out of box with Ubuntu.
