OTOH there wouldn't be multiple distros if there were no differences
between them.  Sure you can make any distro perform similarly but the
way a disto is scripted and the packaging mechanism is certainly
significant enough to warrant discussion.  I'm sure you are trying to
avoid the usual 'distro wars' that occur on many lists but I think
people should have the freedom to mention, 'this disto works for me
because...' or 'hey have you tried such and such feature disto X
offers...' and so on.  I agree distro centric discussions can become
tedious at times but it is one way newbies learn about the various nuances
Linux has to offer.
