Re: price of the 3 debian cds much more expensive than what it is told on the website

[debian-www isn't really the most appropriate list for this type of

any, there, removing debian-www from the list]

Perhaps, but then please not on the main Debian lists. Not everyone
speaks french here (there are some french Debian lists).

Ubuntu and Kubuntu are not Debian; while based on Debian, they really
are different distributions, with different goals.

The main differences are the fact that Ubuntu (and its sisters kubuntu
and edubuntu) have strict 6-month release cycles, while Debian does not;
and the fact that the default Ubuntu installation has a lot more choices
made for you already, whereas a Debian system makes less of those.

Both have their advantages and disadvantages; for example, Debian will
"release when it's ready", meaning that the release will be delayed if
there are too many bugs still open. While I don't expect that Ubuntu
will ship with many bugs, they are a bit laxer in this. Of course, that
also means that you can never tell for sure when the release will
happen, and that our release cycles typically take longer (so the
software in the latest release is, on average, older than the one in the
latest Ubuntu release).

Fun will now commence
