To my mind the biggest contribution downstream projects make is saving
developers time. My experience suggests that it if you are a developer
and you want to spend less time fighting your distro and more time
doing actual productive coding, then Ubuntu is one of the better

It could perhaps make things even easier for developers, but thats
another kettle of fish.
