{ Now, if someone would just clean the copyleft code (GPL etc.) out of Ubuntu, we might have a serious commercial-quality OS here. }

I assume that you were simply trolling here ... but on the off chance that you weren't, I'm very curious ... what exactly is wrong with GPL code?

... please bear in mind that if you just were to download, install from liveCD and then use Ubuntu/Kubuntu, then even in a commercial setting you would not have the source code on your system, so there is no more chance of somehow "corrupting" a proprietary programming project than if you were running Windows ... and it goes without saying that for the vast majority of enterprise scenarios there is no chance of even that worry because the firm in question is just not in the business of writing and selling code.
