Similar comments have been made by the uninformed in the past, before Ubuntu
even existed, with Red Hat, SuSE, Linspire, etc. in its place.  It's normal
and healthy for there to be projects which do things differently from
Debian, but users will sometimes interpret this as a shortcoming of Debian,
which can't go in every direction at once.

Rather than blaming Ubuntu, it's more constructive to educate the user
community about the (useful) role that derivatives play.
