Better to buy a Linux machine from a company that only sells Linux systems, such as Zareason.com.  Great customer service, and if you are in the SF Bay Area, so are they.

Re-discovered Rare Earth last night! Ran one of the tapes from my dad's collection. He recorded these and other songs on a Scotch 3M tape in 1973. I grew up on this music, but haven't played this in 25 years. I'm amazed that the tape still works! Scotch 3M reel on a Akai GX-635D

Rare Earth - what an awesome band!

I currently have a gen1 XPS13, that I got from work. Love it!

We are now in the refresh cycle, and they are looking to give us the gen5 of XPS13 (with Win8.1). Any potential problems to look for with gen5 and Ubuntu? I saw +Barton George 's post on XPS13 developer edition (http://bartongeorge.net/2015/04/09/4th-gen-dell-xps-13-developer-edition-available/), but that mentions gen4.

Any input would be great!

Depends on where you buy. For example, in North America, the least expensive Developer Edition comes with 8 GByte RAM, whereas the Windows version only has 4 GB. However, at least in Canada, the Windows version is a bit cheaper.

Also, there may be different WiFi-hardware in the Windows machine. (That depends on the market, I think.) That other hardware may or may not cause a driver issue with Linux.

Finally, some of the Windows-machines are shipped with an early BIOS version (A01 or A02). So you may have to update that before upgrading from Windows to Linux.

Building a battery-powered tube pre-amplifier (bottlehead) with my kids. Little fingers are a cool advantage at assembling tiny parts :-)
