Id say u r doing the right thing, but i find this a rather unfortunate move towards the masses who happen to know ubuntu. Fork it in some kind of myth, including an unwanted child, maybe adapt Prometheus struggle with Zeus, but let him stay chained to this mountain. Hey, that strange bird is from Redmond.
What I'm trying to say, dont make debian appear like some mental retard's lunatic brother, its the caring one who has got to look after the not-a-bit-better other sibblings.


P.S. I dont want to set up anyone in love with that charming os. hey, I like the purple. Im just trying to explain my concern in marketing-talk...
