This is a bit more subtle...

If you bought extra support from Canonical at your Dell's purchase time,
we'll support any version you throw at it. We=Canonical.

We won't guarantee Ubuntu 9.04 will work on a machine that was certified
on 8.04... but we'll  escalate bugs and provide resolution / workarounds
/ best effort to get things working.
