In my view, a Debian Pure Blend _is_ as boring looking as Debian itself,
because it _is_ Debian. What then makes sense is that companies brand
various redistributions of (physical boxes containing) the FreedomBox
blend of Debian.
I would imagine that Canonical would then make their own "Frubuntu"
fork, whereas Globalscale Technologies and New IT could be convinced of
the selling point of marketing their *Plug hardware as by default
containing the _Pure_ blend of FreedeomBox.
