Yes, Ubuntu is based on Debian. But Ubuntu is not Debian. And while Ubuntu is based on Debian it uses unstable and not Debian stable or testing. Ubuntu also uses a lot of their own repositories and do a lot of their own patching and updating outside that of Debian. Meaning it's going to inherently already be more up to date than Debian on quite a a bit of software.
You really don't seem to have taken notice to what I said, or didn't understand it.

It's only Redhat and Ubuntu that matter; and since Redhat isn't a desktop OS, that only leaves one distro worth targeting. It couldn't be simpler (unless your names CaptainLame - our resident Windows sysadmin)
Yeah, I just threw them in there as they're really the only other big players that could even think about doing it. But you are right that they are much more focused on FOSS than anything proprietary. So yeah, that really just leaves us with Ubuntu that could and wants to go mainstream.Edited by Shrak - 3/20/14 at 4:57pm
