Humour: 7 It's ok, but could definitely use more work in the humor department. A lot of the jokes that are already there could easily be made longer and funnier (but not too long). It also needs more jokes and other humorous misinformation and exaggerated observations about Ubuntu. My advice would be to check out HTBFANJS, which is the guide that many of Uncyclopedia's writers, including myself, use for advice on writing humorously.
Concept: 6 It looks good so far, but rather short. There are many more things about Ubuntu that the article could poke fun at. For example, the shear number of bugs in some releases, sucky performance, memory hogging, the number of newbies in its user base, and all the eye candy in it. And there's a lot more besides that that you can flame.
Prose and formatting: 8 The prose looks good, but I have three things about the formatting that I dislike: the bright orange box at the top, the look of the template at the bottom, and the list of release names. You should use some italics and bolds in some places for emphasis. Also, it's lacking links. I've seen roughly 10 links, not counting ones in templates. A couple good linking guidelines that I use are to have either one link in every other sentence, or three to five per paragraph.
Images: 5 You need more images, specifically more images that are relevant to Ubuntu and funny. For example, you could use one to show how featureless GNOME is or how buggy Compiz is.
Miscellaneous: 6.5 I couldn't find any miscellaneous stuff to blab about, so I'm leaving the average score of everything else here.
Final Score: 32.5 So far, this article is off to a good start, but needs some more work. If enough of the right kind of work and effort are put into this, it might just be worthy of VFH.
