Unfortunately Ubuntu is splitting up the Debian world heavily with its fork

I'd guess the main reason for Ubuntu to start deviate more and more from Debian, is caused by the lack of progress on Debians part. The major failure of Debian regarding releases and keeping up to date, forces the user centric distributions to fork more heavily. This seems to be caused by the lack of will, among parts of the debian comunity and the leaders like Murdock, to actually deliver a distribution. Insted they engage in some unproductive exercises in patting themselves on the back and self-righteous celebration of their community.
