Debian wants to be used on many architectures and uses. Ubuntu does not,
it largely focuses on desktop/laptop support. With more resources on
desktop issues and shorter release cycles, Ubuntu will contribute to
Debian's desktop support, although I cant say to what extent because of
the uneven and inconsistent relationship between the two projects, which
is 'a good thing' for both Debian, Ubuntu and all users.
