I was doing Sarge back in the day when I tried Ubuntu 6.10. I still
have the CD I'd burned. I used it for about 90 days and went back when
Etch came out. I may have already mentioned I left Debian for Arch
when I discovered GFDL packages in non-free. I did Arch and from
scratch for awhile, then Gentoo and from scratch after that.

Unity is GPLv3, btw. I suppose after several years of development it
might reach a point where it could be ported around without so much
effort. If Mr. Morrison is correct when he says Unity requires
excessive low level patching (and I have no reason to think
otherwise), I imagine its development strategy will largely be
Canonical's burden. One might think that's what they wanted all along.
