> Ubuntus early chromium-browser package and PPA (by Fabien Tassin et al) worked out well for all, I think. The package couldnt be added to Debian so early for copyright reasons, and this early packaging provided an inspiration for the Debian packaging when it came.
Personally the PPA's are one of the major reasons I've switched from Debian to Ubuntu.
Plus Ubuntu's out of the box experience is massively better then Debian's. Even after putting significant work into getting things like PulseAudio working on my Debian laptop it was still not as good as what I got out of Ubuntu by default.
Ubuntu 10.10 is a huge improvement over something like 8.04...
