AFAIK Munich uses Debian, and the Spanish region uses Ubuntu.  They just
have their own "version" because they probably want to change some
defaults and maybe add some specific links & programs that are useless
(or less useful) outside of their own use, but save _them_ a lot of time
when installing.  It's the same inside some companies, e.g. Google's
"Goobuntu" or IBM's internal Linux distro, which is based on Red Hat or
Fedora IIRC.
