A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
In my view Ubuntu is doing the community a great service, and as such also its parent company Canonical.
Your estimate is extremely arrogant - it's like those developers who claim they are the only one doing anything useful and all those managers and, oh, salespersons are not needed.
Banshee Amazon Store disabled in Ubuntu 11.04 by Canonical (Network World)

Banshee has many developers working on it, Canonical needs one guy 1 hour per month to get it packaged. Pretty sure my 1/100.000 is not far off.
The other stuff Canonical does like marketing and other blabla is useful - for them. Not for Banshee. If Canonical didn't exist, other distro's would ship their apps and they don't take 75%, not even the company that developed Banshee (Novell) does that in their SUSE or in openSUSE.
But let's be friendly and say Canonical has contributed to Banshee by bringing it to users - that effort is worth 75%? That is way more insulting that saying their effort is worth 1/100.000, frankly.
