Speaking as a current and pre-Ubuntu Debian Sid user I say,
"nonsense."  Ubuntu has broken for me with /almost/ every release.
Yes, the breakage wasn't great, but it was breakage the new ex-Winduhs
user won't be able to handle.

Sid, although it has broken, has never yet broken as often as Ubuntu
although a couple of times (again, pre-Ubuntu and 2004) it did break
