but Ubuntu used the Debian install though, until it creates their own for
their 11.04 repository.

To be precise, Debian is a Linux distribution upon which the Ubuntu
Linux distribution is based, but they are largely separate and *very*
different entities.

As such, Ubuntu uses the Debian package management system (dpkg, apt*,
etc. - as opposed to the Red Hat Package Manager rpm), but they
(Debian and dpkg) are not the same thing.

However, I get your meaning.  I just found it a little confusing up
front (and was concerned that novices to Debian and/or Ubuntu might
find also find it so).
