There's nothing inherently wrong with Ubuntu as far as I can tell and
yes, some versions do have long term support and you can purchase
support from Canonical. But you've been around long enough to know all
this so I'm not sure what point you are trying to make because each
Linux distribution has its own strengths and weaknesses and that
includes RHEL (CentOS) and Ubuntu, etc.
