Currently, we're not, and I for one am OK with it. As far as I am concerned, 
the OS *should* be reporting itself as Ubuntu since it *is* Ubuntu. We're not 
trying to disguise ourselves as a different distro, but as a different out-of-
the-box configuration of said distro. In Studio, we don't try to hide that as 
much as other flavors might. That said, I don't know of a single flavor that 
does change-out /etc/os-release.
