As a LoCo we're not in a position to develop things, but as developers
I am. the problem is that your asking for not only a distro variant
but something that we arn't going to be providing for free: 'support',
if someone wants to start a business were they create meta packages
for ubuntuSME(G) and then sell it with support to local business.

Any takers?
