Judging by the way Ubuntu handles things, Debian Sid should be more stable right?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 5, 2013
The way I understand it is, Ubuntu takes Debian Sid and updates some packages here and there, making it more up-to-date than Ubuntu. Wouldn't this make Ubuntu less stable than Sid? I do remember having less problems with Sid than I do with Ubuntu.
I should add that I'm not trying to troll Ubuntu, I love Ubuntu and use it as my main OS.
Ubuntu package vs. debian package
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 28, 2005
A package I'm compiling has dependencies on glib-2.0.
The runtime version comes with the breezy distro, but not the dev-lib. And I can't find the dev-lib anywhere. So I figured, fine, get the source and make it. Spent many hours getting to understand dpkg* tools.
Then I found that there is a full distribution of the packages I'm looking for (runtime + dev lib) on the debian depot (http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages).
The problem though is that the debian packages use a slightly different version number schema. And so I can't match the dev lib from the debian depot with the already installed run-time lib (I get the dependency error - dependency not met because the breeze runtime is called 2.8.0-0ubuntu1 vs. the debian runtime is called 2.8.0-1). I tried re-loading the already installed run-time forcing the version to the debian package, but that looks like it would uninstall all kinds of stuff that depends on it.
So now I downloaded the source of the debian package to se
Ubuntu vs Debian

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!
I had used in the past Debian 4.0. Now I decided to install Kubuntu. I know that Ubuntu is build upon Debian. So I've got a few questions. Is it possible to install .deb pacckages from Debian disks or repository on Ubuntu? What about drivers are they developed like in Debian? What system utilities I have to read about first (like dpkg)? Is it present LAMP (Apache, MySQL, PHP) in Kubuntu?

If Red Hat, Fedora, SuSE, Slackware, Debian, Ubuntu and Linux Mint were all drunk at a bar and had a fight, who would win?
How to get Debian 7 GNOME Classic or Arch Linux
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 28, 2013
I have a Arch linux system that runs GNOME 3.8.2 and another system that runs the new Debian Wheezy 7.1 that came out a few days ago. I really LOVE the GNOME Classic mode that is included on Debian 7.1, and though I use my Arch system most of the time, I prefer the Classic GNOME greatly over GNOME 3.8.2, so I was wondering if it is possible to add the GNOME classic included on debian and put it into Arch. And I don't want to use XFCE as a replacement. So if someone could tell me how to get GNOME classic on arch linux, That'll be great
[SOLVED] Debian, Ubuntu, OpenSuse or Mint?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 1, 1970
I've been a Ubuntu user since version 8 to version 10. After they release version 11 with Gnome3 I just stopped liking them. I switched to Linux mint but I did not like as much. Also, I have tried Fedora, Debian and OpenSuse. Which Distro do you guys think is better? I really don't want to deal with Gnome3. It is annoying.
Feel free to suggest other Distros. Basically, I use my computer for school work, browsing the net, watching videos and playing music, etc. Nothing major.
I have an Intel i3 2.3GHZ, 4GB of RAM and 500GB Dell laptop. Should I install a 32 or 64 version?
[SOLVED] Debian vs. Ubuntu vs Kubuntu
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 10, 2013
So, I'm trying to understand the difference between pure Debian, Ubuntu and Kubuntu.
Now, I know that Ubuntu and Kubuntu are basically built on Debian, but what are the major differences? Are they less reliable/customizable? Why would one prefer pure Debian over Ubuntu/Kubuntu?
And is there any major difference in terms of performance or reliability between Ubuntu and Kubuntu? Why would you prefer one over the other, other than desktop environment preference?
The way I see it, and it's my completely unprofessional pure gut feeling, is that Debian is the more reliable and professional OS, whereas Ubuntu and Kubuntu are there just for beginners who want to play around with Linux.
Again, I completely don't know what I'm talking about which is why I'm asking, so how far is my gut feeling from the truth?
Also, is Ubuntu server a serious enough server OS?
Thanks in advance!
ubuntu vs debian
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 28, 2005
i am currently a slackware user, though i'm thinking of moving to debian to have more control on my system mantainance, and because i'm a gnome lover.
right now, slack (which i used to love and still appreciate a lot) is quitting on gnome, and i have too much dependance on things like dropline for it to have all the packages i need.
i'd like to have a flexible yet mantainable system, to configure to my likings.
would you think ubuntu would be better for me than debian? i know this is a typical unanswerable question, what i am looking for here is that i believe users opinions - your opinions - count more than anything i could read on ubuntu itself.
Red Hat (Fedora) vs Debian (Ubuntu)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 10, 2008
Okk, red hat is rpm based package management, and debian uses apt and .deb. Debian and Red Hat are server (mainly) with Ubuntu (yes I know its a totally different project based on debian, but could be considered the user friendly debian) and Fedora the desktop equivilants. So, what is the real differnces, cos im really confused. Had most experiance with Debian based systems through Ubuntu mainly. DOes the IT inductry use red hat/fedora though and how do the usability of both the command line and GUI really differ?
Any thoughts - begin the flame!
Stability comparision of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with Debian 6 Squeeze!
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 10, 2012
I have read a lot about Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and most reviews say its extremely stable. I would like to know your opinions about this. Ubuntu 12.04 LTS is without doubt the first Ubuntu edition which is very stable and mostly bug free at release. This is what most reviews say. And if that is correct, give it a year and with updates from Canonical it could be as stable and bug free as Debian 6 is. This is what I think. What you think about this? Am I correct?
