Debian and its clones MEPIS, one of the more popular Debian-derived distributions, may be moving in a new direction soon. MEPIS founder Warren Woodford is considering building future MEPIS releases from Ubuntu sources rather than from Debian. SimplyMEPIS 3.4-3, which is scheduled for release today, has been quite a challenge to build, according to Woodford. "It's taking up all my time, fighting the Etch pool... We've had a lot of trouble, because the Debian community has become so active, it's been difficult to get this out, so I'm looking at alternatives to getting out stable releases."

How can you dislike something you have never tried, ubuntu is bringing the linux experience to people who might never try it, or try a less user-friendly distro and not like it, so they switch back. Being closed minded and choosing to believe the worse about an organization when they have made no actions that backup your feelings are bad for the whole OSS movement
