The page says that Debian didn't "win", it just got the largest number
of people agreeing that yes, it is a legitimate community
distribution. But what is FOSS Force, and why are the people who
follow their blog an interesting population to poll? That last line
makes it sound as if the editors (blogs have editors?) were telling
readers who to vote for (and maybe they were, if it all started with a
post saying that Ubuntu couldn't be counted as a "community distro").
