You conveniently forgot to quote the next line, which was that
Canonical donated a 5 year support contract.

Yes, because Fedora (and all the insulting variations of the name you
can make in true M$-Mickysoft-Winblows name-calling style) has 500 MB
of updates every week, right? I'm sure that Wikipedia needs the latest
unstable Compiz on their MySQL servers.

Furthermore, you an be sure that Wikipedia butchers their own
packages. Brion pretty much says just that in the relevant /. thread.
