#! based on debian vs ubuntu

What are the pros and cons of #! being based on debian vs ubuntu ?

Has anything changed since the gnome shell vs unity vs cinnamon vs elementry OS
gnome "mega split" ?

So its GTK + (yes), but gnome apps (no). Is this accurate ?

Basically, although Crunchbang comes with Gnome Calculator by default.

It's only a 'megasplit' if you view Ubuntu and Linux as being one in the same. They're all just Linux distros doing their thing around the Linux kernel.

Re: #! based on debian vs ubuntu

for me what is sad in linux is not the usage of different WE but using different kind of packages sad
and the no promotion of LSB because every time u want to try something new (eg u have debian and want to try suse)
u are afraid that many of the apps u are used to will not be compatible with ur new systems.
ofc i say u have nothing to be afraid of, is good using alternative apps (instead of gedit geany or deluge
for ktorrent) because u learn more and more but still distros compatibility is a big issue.

anyway back to the topic i think that rhowaldt just put it as is. ubuntu is a bloat.
debian is not and when u add on this a light WE (any light WE, not only OB) u have
something wonderful smile

(to be honest i prefer OB in comparison with enlightment TWM or others but this is IMO smile)

Re: #! based on debian vs ubuntu

The last Ubuntu Crunchbang goes back to 2009. That's about a century in IT years.
