Right, let me clarify: I mean customized versions of Ubuntu. I work in 
the OEM group of Canonical and have faced the need to customized the 
home help (I have hammered on it), and it has been difficult. It may or 
may not be a matter of importance to the community, but it is 
theoretically important to realize that Ubuntu itself is the upstream to 
customized versions that benefit from the all the excellent work of the 
community, for which I am personally thankful! These customized Ubuntu 
distros may be widely used and deployed. There are some well-known 
netbooks in this category. Regarding customizability, I am adding my two 
cents to the conversation, namely: I hope we end up with help front page 
help that is easily customizable in the ways I identified: easy to add 
topics, easy to remove topics, easy to switch to a different front page 
than the default.
