Perfectly acceptable definitions, but It wasn't the point I was

I was merely pointing out that Canonical has spent more money
and staff time contributing to Debian than anyone else, and in
so doing, raised it from a minor player with a political axe to grind
to a major player.

I don't like everything they have done, but then I don't like
everything Novell has done for Suse either.

As an aside, I don't have any major quality issues with Kubuntu
and Xubuntu - at least none that rise to the level of the broken
ZMD debacle of recent history. It would probably be polite to
have pot wait a couple of releases before calling the kettle black.
