I really want to know that.

Yes, Ubuntu is based off of Debian.

So at the moment, we can safely say that the marjority of packages is Debian.

Including the heavy patching.
For instance, don't feel bad you don't have X.org yet. Debian patched XFree up so bad, that there is very little difference.
