If you really feel strongly about it (although the scare quotes around 'impartial' suggests you're merely trying to score a political point) send them a correction. The BBC are pretty good about altering factural errors.

Just above the section that mentions Windows: "In the meantime, units come with the Ubuntu 10.04 LTS operating system on CD ready to install."

It's a real shame that the BBC have decided to label it a Windows machine, intentional or not. The BBC website does have a past history of mentioning Windows a lot more than Linux, where credit is due, and not mentioning Windows where discredit is due.
I can imagine that there will be a number of returns if it's being marketed as a Windows machine...
