This is a very interesting topic and should be discussed a little

I do like the way it presents it's self but I don't find it to be a
useful full base release as like Ubuntu runs with it's backports and
community in which is the MAIN fact of Ubuntu really being the top of
the line distro.

If gnoppix is really finding it's self to run like Ubuntu, then maybe
it's linked arms with the developers?
