I pretty much stay with the Ubuntu / Debian base such as Peppermint 7

Yeah, me too, since 2010 ...

I venture into enemy territory, to see what they're planning, but there's no place like /home.  ;)

"Ubuntu is an ancient African word, meaning I can't configure Debian".  Reminds me of my youth, trying to fix my motorcycle. The Haynes Manual shows you how to strip an engine in an defined manner, but not how to service the clutch or set the tappets, that do not need to be completely disassembled.

It is a joke. They (debian users) see themselves as our superiors. It is their quip to show contempt of Ubuntu users.

PCNetSpec earlier response

LOL :)) .. I don't agree with it. but LOL anyway :))

A better definition would probably be:-
"Ubuntu is an ancient African word, meaning Debian packaged properly, and why the heck should I need to fix Debian manually anyway"

The complete sentence conveys this, both parts in context.
“We know what we are, but not what we may be.”

They're still just salty because they had the most user friendly Linux distribution around until Ubuntu came along and was all like, "Look, this doesn't have to be a pain in the butt."  ;)
