Concur. And if I am honest, I could not be bothered to look up the
license. Like you, I avoid Ubuntu like the plague. I went back to
dumped Ubuntu and went back to Debian around Gutsy. Between the broken
encryption in the installer and the beginnings of what I saw as the
writing on the wall (which has borne out over the years), I'm much
happier with pure Debian.
