Pc world don't understand Linux so they do say that.  The warranty only
covers the hardware and not the software other wise when there were
issues with windows you'd be able to take it back and and have it fixed
for free :)

I've seen ubuntu running on the netbook as it is based on the msi wind.
So I don't know what they are on about.  UNR runs better on it but
basically what ever modern linux desktop should run fine.
