Open Letter to the new Debian Project Leader
Keith Curtis writes "I have nothing against Ubuntu, and I love my operating system very much, but I believe that in principle, I should be running Debian. The Ubuntu guys took the efforts of your decade-old project, now containing 1,600 developers, added 10-30 of their own, threw in some new artwork, and have created a huge amount of excitement. Everyone agrees that Ubuntu couldn't exist without Debian, but I also believe that Debian is better setup to take Ubuntu where it needs to go. There are hints that the Ubuntu team feels like they brought a pork chop suit to a lion's den."
