  • ["Kubuntu"] (Ubuntu with KDE instead of Gnome)
  • ["Edubuntu"] (Ubuntu focused on education)
  • ["Xubuntu"] (Ubuntu with XFCE instead of Gnome)
  • ["Gobuntu"] (Ubuntu-base for other free software platforms)

And perhaps in the future:

  • GrumpyGroundhog (an Ubuntu-derived distribution containing a "crack-of-the-day" set of packages)
