What really gets annoying is that even though ubuntu is supposedly
debian-derived, some fairly significant fixes don't seem to make it up

For me, Ubuntu has some stuff that works better because it's a newer
version, but also some that is worse due to the bad bugfix porting or
the rush forward for eyecandy vs stability.
