Yes, but as with KDE this isn't supported as someone hasn't gone
through it to make sure it's fully free. Should be trivial for xubuntu
What does this involve?  I started going through the packages in the xubuntu-desktop meta package and it seem that some packages are under a "gpl license with exceptions".  For example, cdrecord and cupsys:

Are there any guidelines we can use to help decide whether the software still falls under the free software umbrella even with the exceptions to the license.  Maybe someone can put something on the wiki?
