The webcam on what is broken? It has worked fine from day one on my PanP7, which has been through 10.10, 11.04, and 11.10.
As far as the fingerprint reader, it's really unfair to make a suggestion that Ubuntu doesn't work on your computer just because an obscure peripheral doesn't work. As well, I read (somewhere in this forum) that System76 has been working with Canonical to get the fingerprint reader back up and running for 12.04. That doesn't mean it's going to happen, but they're, at very least, making the effort - hardly nothing.
