Current About page seems to be telling what's *same* in all Ubuntu
variants, i.e. what's Ubuntu in general, not what Xubuntu is about.

While it's good to tell that too so that one can differentiate Xbuntu
e.g. from OSX & Windows, that could be for example under "The features &
philosophy derived from the Ubuntu distribution" heading.
