Looking at the main page at trinitydesktop.org, you see "Debian Lenny" and "Debian Squeeze", not "Debian 5.0" and "Debian 6.0". This may be what the OP was referring to. The only reason I know the difference is because I have been using Debian for just under a year. If I hadn't done my research on Debian beforehand, I'd have no inkling of an idea what "Squeeze" and "Lenny" referred to. Since I'm not an Ubuntu user, I have not been keeping track of their code names, so I could not tell you the difference between "Karmic" and "Lucid" except that they are two different versions of Ubuntu, but I do not know what those versions are.
