Only thing here that seems a little odd is the domain name. It is called Ourbuntu, but
it looks as though any Linux operating system could be offered. The name seems a little
misleading or possibly too narrow. It sounds like it is Ubuntu derivatives only. Quick
thought that popped in my head is something like opensystems.com (unfortunately a check
shows that is owned by Tucows Inc.). But such a name would imply that they are
computers systems with open licenses, not Ubuntu only.
Other than that it looks very nice.
