Ubuntu is a commercial distribution, for loose definitions of 
Why shouldn't they cut a deal with Revolution, who is doing a very 
similar thing? 

If you want something closer to the ideal of volunteer-driven free
 as in beer
and speech, you'll need to stick with Debian.

Canonical and Revolution have very similar business models.  
And they just
happen to have similar relationships to volunteer-driven 
development in Debian
and R-Core.
