Ubuntu default bookmarks pointing to Debian

Just noticed that the default bookmarks in Ubuntu include one entry pointing back to Debian. It even says that Ubuntu is based on Debian.

It’s a small thing but it made my day. It’s nice to see this kind of acknowledgement.

Click on the screenshot to see the picture in full size (and yes, most favicons suck with a dark background). For those wondering, the screenshot is taken on a default install of Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Edition.

After a successful liberation campaign, the Debian Administrator's Handbook is now freely available. If you appreciate my articles and what I do for Debian, check out the book and grab a copy.

  1. That’s great. It’s also made me realize that the bookmark for “Ubuntu Wiki” points to what is now a 404 page.

  2. Finally, had to explain that Ubuntu was based on Debian to this Ubuntu user just last night. He wasn’t aware of it at all, and he’s been using it for awhile now.

  3. I’ve been using Ubuntu for a long time and I’m proud to use it everyday just because it is based on Debian. The rest is just details… :)

  4. I have a feeling all the “tension” between Ubuntu and Debian is because Ubuntu is just not giving enough credit to Debian.

    Hopefully this will change in future :)
