Ubuntu vs Fedora: same font settings yet different look
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 26, 2009
I have two systems running side by side: Ubuntu 9.04 and Fedora 10. Both with GNOME, both out of the box with no customizations, same monitor, same video card.
I have set both to 96dpi resolution, size 10 font, and made sure all the other font settings were the same. Yet, for some unknown reason, Fedora's GUI fonts look so much smaller (which is what I want).
How come Ubuntu's settings don't match? I have tried changing the font size down to 8 or 9, but still can't match it. What gives?
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.

Debian vs. Ubuntu?

First of all, I would like to state that this in no way is intended to start a flame war, it is simply my curiosity getting the better of me. Please, if I seem trollish, I dont mean to be.
Now that THAT'S out of the way...
What are the major differences between Debian and Ubuntu? As far as I can tell, Ubuntu is a bit better about drivers, and the packages tend to be configured a bit beyond just the default settings. The other thing I can see is the significant lack of effort required to install it, though Debian isn't exactly slacking there either.
I seek enlightenment and nothing more. I'm positive that there are more differences in the underlying software and that I just can't see them.
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
