I don't care one way or another if it puts Ubuntu out of business (or
Canonical, as it were), but I want Debian to provide a top-notch desktop
experience for Debian's sake.
Deferring to Ubuntu for this work is the worst sort of defeatist nonsense
and I will not to bow to it. I like collaborating with the Ubuntu people,
but I refuse to compromise my own work or Debian as a project just so that
they can excel.
