It won't happen - and that's good. I don't want a Ubuntu kernel. That's only for a start. I want a rock solid Debian system, and I don't care if it has Gnome 2.14, 16 or 18. This may be important for Ubuntu, SUSE, Fedora - for other distributions it is not vitally important.

Anyway - every distribution has Linux, every distribution has Gnome, KDE, the GNU tools, and the LSB. What else do we need? I don't want "Ubuntu" (any name might do) everywhere - that's a nightmare. I want specialized distributions, and I want three or four "big" distributions, that are out for a challenge (Ubuntu, SUSE, Fedora, Debian).
