Harish asked for a comparison of two terms, not how to best phrase the 

I took the liberty to introduce a third term and compare them both 
against that.  A term which I was confident about and was certain to 
keep relevancy for this mailinglist - confusions of terms are quite well 
known to turn discussions off-topic here.

I agree that "Debian Blend" is a vague term which potentially has no 
special intent towards Debian and therefore more accurately could be 
called a "Debian derivative" - but that is a different topic than the 
one raised by Harish, I believe.
