I would never use Ubuntu on a system like a university. It needs some
configuration to fit that bill.. Imagine every user having access to every
file using sudo. Of course it can be modified. But it needs more config than
something that comes configured for this out of the box like Debian. Also
remember, if Debian ever shuts down.. which is next to impossible, there
will be no ubuntu.. ubuntu will need those deb packages to add more shine
Be yourself everyday, every way
