I agree. I use Ubuntu, because its release cycles are shorter, but
prefer Debian over Ubuntu, because Debian aims to be a free GNU/Linux
Distribution while Ubuntu does not (some software Canonical produces is
released as proprietary software).

However, I don't see a big difference between Debian and Ubuntu
for non-GNOME users.

I was quite happy with CRUX until I had some clashes with the developers.
