It should be noted that about 99% of the applications in Ubuntu comes
from Debian. Sometimes they are crippled (because Ubuntu wants things
to be easy). Look for example at the screen saver "3D text". In Ubuntu
is it not possible to change the text.

Ubuntu is, like a lot of Linux distros, based on Debian. Why? Simply
because Debian is "the" Gnu Linux. Of all the major Linux distros,
Debian is the only one which is fully "free" (as in freedom). That's
why everbody use it as a base.
