If you plan on recompiling most of the system and want to remove all Ubuntu branding, perhaps you would be better off by simply not using Ubuntu in the first place. Maybe look into LFS or just straight Debian.

Please, use punctuation in your posts. Entire paragraphs without punctuation are difficult to read.

Just use Debian Testing or Unstable.
