Support of debian is excellent but we are less user friendly than
ubuntu. For isntance the bug sytem could be made simplier for joe
simpler user, using an http interface than reportbug-ng (what should
be installed by default for your desktop user) or even mail. I think
having a simple bug report form and wizard will really help your
Increasing your quality also, will improve your user base.
Last but not least improving the unbuntu to debian package transfert
and therefore the project http://wiki.debian.org/Utnubu
(i plan to package google gears BTW)
