Ubuntu built on the solid foundation of Debian

After my previous post on an Ubuntu ad in Slashdot (and I've since seen them in google adwords too), I actually spotted it again and clicked it to satisfy my curiosity. I got sent to a Canonical page, which seemed normal enough.
One small bit did catch my eye, and after all the back and forth about Ubuntu not recognizing enough it is based on Debian, I thought it would be nice to air it out in public:

(no, I don't think this settles anything, just nice, ain't it?)

  1. Can you please elaborate on “I don’t think this settles anything”? It’s not clear at all to what you’re referring to.

  2. Ah, yes, that might not me clear enough.
    I was referring to the idea that “Ubuntu doesn’t acknowledge Debian enough”.
    I don’t think this buries that discussion, but it is a small steps towards it.

  3. I’m not into all of the “doesn’t acknowledge this, doesn’t acknowledge that” hype. It’s quite easy to realise after using ubuntu for a month or so just how many different people contribute to the whole thing..
