nope. to resume, they are based on two main issues:
1) fostering variety and discouraging top-down branding of big
distributions. this point is better described in my previous
posts: consider i'm doing a distribution myself and at the same time
writing software for mine and other distributions, so i'm constantly
questioning how small and medium scale efforts can be sustainable
especially if a distribution can hide to the users the single efforts
it contains and even the original platform it forks from after 10
years of development. we should preserve and support the variety of
free software, not brand it under a single flag, to make it survive
lively as it does now (IMHO).
2) pertinence - since Ubuntu is not an audio oriented distribution.

no problem. i'm really glad to hear others opinions as i'm not running a
crusade, just a poll and a discussion.
