Any benefit to using Ubuntu over debian when you arent going to be able to use many/if any of the ubuntu specific differences due to a lack of GUI atm?

This is coming from a casual ubuntu user, but debian is still the daddy.

ubuntu on my g1

I'm going to try installing it on my g1 tomorrow. I'll keep you guys updated. I got debian and lxde to work before but it was annoying so this time I'm going to follow slashdot and install either Enlightenment or maybe BlackBox or AfterEffects as guis. I think any of those would be a lot cooler looking on an arm phone. Lxde was too windows looking for me. Stay tuned...
