Ubuntu Support for Dell Venue 11 Pro 7000 Series

Just putting this out there as a general inquiry. Long story short I want Dell to 'shut up and take my money!' for a Venue 11 Pro 7000 but I need 64-bit Ubuntu support for my work as a PhD candidate. From what I've read online, wifi and bluetooth are not working for this device; source: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2187204&p=13092919#post13092919. Does Dell have any plans for providing any Ubuntu support for this device? I really really want to buy one emoticon.Geeked.title

I haven't read that whole thread, but I can boot a Venue 11 Pro 7140 with Ubuntu Gnome 15.04 off USB into a live session and everything works with the exception of audio. I have a bug opened on that and the solution seems to be a patched kernel that out to be released pretty soon. Other than that, the only official bug I know about on the 7140 seems to be a problem resuming from suspend.
