Debian and its clones FreeSoftwareMagazine takes a look at Debian as a desktop system, and they conclude: "I feel that Debian Etch is as good on the desktop as it is on the server. It has a long rich history, a strong community, is amazingly stable and is a great fit for both my servers and my laptop. I urge everyone to give it a go on the desktop."

"""
Tell you what, let's see Ubuntu NOT use ANY Debian packages for the next 3 years. See how far they get...

Why should they? Perhaps Debian should keep a few bits that they own proprietary to themselves to prevent other distros from competing effectively?

Debian is dedicated to Free Software, right?

I don't understand all the bitching from Debian fans when other distros compete effectively.

It's not like Canonical and Ubuntu advocates do not freely acknowledge that they are standing on the shoulders of giants.

Sometimes is seems like the further one journeys into Free Software land, the more jealous and petty are the people one meets.
