Please do not top post, it breaks the flow of the discussion. I know be

Second, please disable HTMl formatting. It is useless and we strip it 

Third, please do not equate Ubuntu with Linux. It is a distribution of 
Linux and like all of them their weaknesses and strengths.

Normally, Alex our fantastic Debian developer/maintainer provides 
packages for the most recent Debian/Ubuntu releases in our own 
repositories. So you should see these soon. In this case it is 
completely dependent on his free time to do this.
