That will get him a Ubuntu system, not a Debian system.
As much as Ubuntu is "based" on Debian, you are limited to Ubuntu's
world and can't practically install packages from Debian.
I don't want to start a "ubuntu is a fork" war, and maybe things have changed
since I got my experience with it, but once I had Ubuntu 5.04 on my machine
I couldn't get all the Debian packages on it and went back to Debian.
