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."

Let me tell you... no. Everybody knows that Ubuntu is based on Debian, and would be nothing without it. The Ubuntu guys are enjoying their rights they have been granted (by Debian being free software) to build a product (which many would call better), as an act to benefit the community. That's exactly how it should be.

If people who don't like this course continue bitching around how ungrateful the Ubuntu devs and community are, then this has nothing to do with free software.
