We'll it's not just prereleases of Ubuntu, have you seen the December Calendar background image? While certainly a beautiful picture/woman, it certainly will raise the eyebrows of many many people (probably more than the original image which caused all the commotion). There is a difference between that image and the hot-babe one to be sure.
I guess I really don't have much of a point here, just felt the need to comment. Some people are always going to find something offensive in whatever you do. I think if your goal is adoption/usage of your particular product, you should do whatever appeals to the demographic you're going after. If you're not going after the business world or the American mid-west conservative family man, then those images are certainly going to be more acceptable to your target audience. However if your goal is world domination, then maybe the images should be toned down a bit to be more widely acceptable.
