What is the difference from Debian without non-free repos? Just branding?
Totally "free" Ubuntu? That's the plan for Gobuntu (Linux.com)

I suspect it's our usual 6 month release cycles with 18 months of security support + similar for long-term releases.
Looking at the announcement, I think it might also still come with FDL documentation still included.
There's also little things occasionally that we do, like desktop integration, some feature development, translations from Rosetta, etc. that are likely to still be included.
Debian and Ubuntu aren't that similar on the desktop. They're closer on the server, just with the frequent releases, a promised support cycle, and the possibility of commercial support when you need it.

Of course, these days the desktop environment is a glorified launcher for a web browser and /etc/alternatives/x-terminal-emulator ;-)
