well both tuxlabs and linode that I mentioned are building a business partly on
xubuntu.Endorsing businesses in not just gratuitous advertising :) It can encourage
other businesses in different parts of the world to evaluate the software. It is
advertising Xubuntu in fact.
That's a good thing since it shows free software as an alternative not only for
hobbyists and geeks but for consumers. Just as Canonical advertises the various
high profile Ubuntu related deals with commercial entities, I think that's fine
to do on the Xubuntu page as well. Kubuntu also has a list of derived distros on
their page. So the various uses could be categorized on the website as for example
hw being sold with xubuntu (or derivative) preinstalled, large deployments,
derivative distros etc.
