It's funny you mention this. I just put this page icons made by our
own volvoguy onto the website/wiki:

Perhaps a "This Server Runs Ubuntu" icon would be a little less subtle
-- in a good way and we can encourage people to use it on their
website. That would be a good meme-squasher and we can definitely put
it on our website to start with.
