Debian and its clones The resignation of Matthew Garrett, one of the most active developers in Debian, has drawn attention to some ongoing issues about how the project operates. Specifically, Garrett's announcement on his blog cites a lack of civility and a slowness in decision-making, and compares Debian unfavorably to Ubuntu, the Debian-derived distribution which is increasingly attracting the efforts of many Debian maintainers.

I forgot about debian

After almost 10 years using debian everywhere..
No more mailing list nonsense, no more broken package combinations, no more license nazism for not-so-open packages (java/flash/nvidia/vmware/mplayer/etc), no more "but It's fixed in experimental/unstable!" when I used testing, no more having to wait a lot to use the latest technologies in testing..(cairo/xgl/latest gnome), no more "I want to upgrade an app, but needs 45mb of upgrades from packages of the SAME RELEASE, that only changed debian packaging revision ", etc

Couldn't be happier with Ubuntu!
