WARNING: BTRFS Will Screw Your Debian/Ubuntu System
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 6, 2011
Well I've just been through Hell, trying to resolve a problem that's not fixable apparently. I chose to set up /boot with ext3 and / with BTRFS because of all the nice features it has.
Things were fine for a couple months until this most recent dist-upgrade. The new grub has an incompatibility with BTRFS which nearly caused me to lose everything, as grub couldn't set up the boot system since it can't see the BTRFS partition.
I worked for days trying to get help in the linux-btrfs listserv, but they don't seem to understand Debian/Ubuntu, and they kept referring me to Debian and grub devs. I asked them how those devs will know any more about BTRFS than they do, but there was no reply.
They said the new grub (1.99~rc1-13) will fix it, but unfortunately the Debian package management system was jammed by BTRFS as well and I couldn't install/deinstall anything. I finally had to unpack the grub-pc .deb and manually install it, but guess what? It didn't fix the problem.

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS versus LMDE (Linux Mint Debian) 201204?

http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=1979 I'm really having to ponder this one? Mate 1.2, when idle, really does use half as much RAM as Unity. That was a surprise, especially since I'm comparing 64-bit vs. 64-bit. I have yet to notice any of the rough edges and quirks that are typical of a Mint release.
Ubuntu vs Debian

Nearly all Ubuntu and Debian users are probably aware that without Debian, there would be no Ubuntu. Debian is the father and Ubuntu is the son. But I've noticed that there are numerous Debian users in the blogosphere that seem to consider Ubuntu the unwanted illegitimate son. Slamming Ubuntu whenever they get a chance. Not necessarily here on these forums, but I've seen many highly negative statements by Debian users regarding Ubuntu on other forums and blogs.
I guess my question is Why? If you're a Debian user who does not like Ubuntu, explain. I'm genuinely curious about the Ubuntu hate I've seen lately. After all, were all Linux users whether it be Debian, Ubuntu, Arch, Slackware, Fedora or whatever.

I am curious just in general, what the real difference between Debian and Ubuntu actually is? I thought they were basically the same, just different Ubuntu specific software installed on a Debian system but I have come across a few packages that stated they would not work on a Ubuntu system but can on Debian. So Im just confused now.
debian terminal vs ubuntu

I'm trying to run an install script in Debian that works fine in Ubuntu. When it asks me to enter the hostname for the install it errors out saying it needs to be alphanumeric, which it is. Is there a difference in the way the keyboard is interpreted between Ubuntu and Debian?

debian vs ubuntu graphic driver
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 7, 2011
Hi guys, after the latest debian release squeeze, I wanted to try out debian,and go back to the roots of ubuntu. But one thing bother's me, debian doesn't do well with my old intel gpu (i865g). But ubuntu always works nicely with my gpu. I'm confused even having updated my mesa drivers and xorg to the latest i still don't seem able to get any 3d acceleration under debian. But under ubuntu its flawless. I know that ubuntu uses custom made drivers, but what i want to know is what part of the driver do the tweak to get it work like that? I don't mind if you guys answer it technically, i would prefer it the most. Because the sole purpose i took up linux is to learn it.
