Anyone know if a call will work if the computer is in ubuntu? It says on their site that even if they reformat the computer a call will work (how?) but I don't know if they are only talking about if windows is the running os.

According to the website (http://www.absolute.com/en/lojackforlaptops/technology.aspx):

The technology behind Absolute Software’s products is the Computrace Agent, a small software client that is embedded into the BIOS firmware of most computers at the factory. Or you can easily install yourself.
It is OS independent because it runs in the computer's firmware.
