Bruce claimed that Userlinux was ready to ship the moment Debian did. It turned out that this wasn't actually true - even if Debian had released six months or a year earlier, there's no evidence to suggest that Userlinux would actually have appeared anyway. Ubuntu ended up being many of the things that Userlinux was intended to be, and had successfully generated a technical community even before releasing the first version of their software. If you go back and look at the Userlinux mailing list archives, it's pretty clear that that wasn't happening for them.
