I think Graziano is right, however I have to tell you that the default
desktop environment installed by Ubuntu and by Debian are a little bit
different, being Ubuntu the most user friendly. I think this has to be
because Ubuntu contains more updated packages of gnome than Debian
(even in Lenny) but I think and hope this will change in no longer
time (after the release of Lenny).

It could be a task for gNewSense to not only free Debian's main
repository and kernel but also enhance the desktop experience by
making the necessary changes to its default configuration.

I think that basing the distribution on Debian will give to gNewSense
the possibility to run on the many platforms that Debian already
supports (including MIPS of course).

Please take this just as an user opinion.
