So I’m listening to the @ubuntupodcast and they were talking about advocating Linux on the desktop (great episode, highly recommended)

Anyway, that got me thinking - at what point would Ubuntu be considered a distro in its own right and no longer a fork of Debian?

Personally, I feel it surpassed the title of “fork” a long time ago, as they’re two completely different OSs.

What do you guys think? Is Ubuntu an OS in its own right, or will it always be a fork of Debian?

That's kinda down to semantics. It's a fork, but still a whole different experience to use (mostly just installing software).
