I wrote in my plateform that "I decided to join Debian because it is a
successfull fully volunteer project, and the political significance of
that appealed to me, more than the purely technical aspect.". Another
less political, more immediate point of being a fully volunteer project
is that I can ran for leadership.

As I understand, this aspect is completly lost in Ubuntu. Most major
design decisions in Ubuntu are made by developers working for Canonical,
not volunteers.

I have never used Ubuntu, so I have no technical opinion.

Imagine a large red swirl here.
