Nice one!

  "The goal of the Ubuntu folks is to provide a more up-to-date Debian than
  Debian, while eliminating many of the potentially confusing installation
  options and permutations encountered when installing many Linux
  distributions. They accomplish these goals extremely well, with an
  easy-to-use installation process, a great system update and enhancement
  mechanism, and a distribution that makes a great starter--or permanent
  home--for Linux users who'd just like to use their computer to get work
  done."

  ...

  "Commercial support for Ubuntu is available directly from Canonical, LTD
  (http://www.canonical.com/), which is the company that sponsors the Ubuntu
  project. Canonical's support offerings are listed on the Ubuntu site at
  http://www.ubuntulinux.org/support/paidsupport/. A substantial number of
  firms all over the world that provide support for Ubuntu are also listed
  in the Ubuntu Marketplace site at
  http://www.ubuntulinux.org/support/marketplace. The latter is an
  incredible testimonial to the wide-spread and well-established nature of
  Ubuntu after a relatively short time in Linux years."
