This is hardly a consumer product. We're talking about a developer SDK here. Now, if Google released some consumer level Linux software, (e.g. Picasa) that only worked on one distro, I could see a little more cause for complaining, but this is for developers.
If a developer can't either:
(1) set up a VM or dual boot or new machine with Ubuntu to work with Android, or,
(2) Cooperate with the community to fix whatever little issues are required to make the Android SDK work on their distro of choice
