projects using xubuntu

I think this would be a good idea.  While all flavors of linux have some
kind of community involvement, I think this element is particularly strong
in Ubuntu, and (simply because Xubuntu runs on lighter hardware) even more
so in Xubuntu.  It would be neat to demonstrate how the OS is being used.

Those are the positives of showing how Xubuntu is being used . . . Does
anyone have any concerns?  Would we limit our "notes" to only non-profit or
community-based groups using Xubuntu?  What if a business was using Xubuntu,
would we - by extension - be endorsing that business if we put their info up
on the website?  Does it matter if we're "endorsing" them in this way?

For one, Free Geek Chicago ( uses Xubuntu 6.06 on the
computers that we sell and donate.  People can either purchase a computer
(including a mouse, monitor, and keyboard) for $50, or volunteer in a
computer work/learning program at our location for 20-25 hours and earn a
free computer.  The group has only been around for about a year and a half,
but it's running well.  (Thanks, in part, to Xubuntu.)  :)
