Is UbuntuCE officially supported by Canonical?
No, it is not "officially" supported. Our project is not funded by Canonical. However, we have contacted them regarding our project and they have given us guidelines to follow and have thanked us for supporting the Ubuntu Community and introducing Ubuntu to the Christian Community.
Is UbuntuCE a new distribution of Ubuntu or a derivative?
Well it is really neither. UbuntuCE is based directly from the standard Ubuntu distribution and contains extra Christian software and is pre-configured with web content filtering. The graphical changes are minor and are only intended to tailor the project to Christians.
Why should I use UbuntuCE if I can install the same software on Ubuntu itself?
The concept behind the UbuntuCE is not to deviate from the Ubuntu community. It is intended to draw a larger Christian base to the already thriving community of Ubuntu users. UbuntuCE simply makes it easier for Christians who are new to Linux to see the power of Ubuntu combined with the added benefit of having the best available Linux Christian software pre-installed.
