Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "This follow-up to the previously published article 'Ubuntu: Derivative or Fork?' takes into account most of everything that has been posted as a reaction to the first article to present a general opinion and compare them with facts derived from various resouces. You'll see that peace can be achieved between these two, and ultimately any GNU/Linux group out there."

Apart nice discussions on freedom and gpl tell me please a serious technical need for ubuntu to avoid debian compatibility.
Personally I came from a world of red hat where, when you find the rpm you need , it is for suse or mandrake and you cannot install on redhat. In the debian world I can install debian using knoppix then I change apt sources...

Ubuntu is an hyper hyped distro. The first version was only debian renamed with broken compatibility. Now I tried the latest live version (that should recognize notebooks etc. etc. ) on my thinkpad just to see that it has no madwifi driver and no thinkpad acpi or buttons management...

Sorry but I do not want to lose 10000+ debian packages....
