I really like that analogy - and your exactly right.  Alot of os's (and some
more than others) get to the point where you've been using them for a while,
installing this and removing that, and your system (or registry :) is so full 
of crud, that you just decide to clean it all up and reinstall.

Debian, on the other hand, seems to avoid this crud build up - everything is
where I expect, and I can upgrade/recompile/remove anything easily without
making a mess.  Nowdays I am very carefull of my debian installation, theres
no way I really want to do a reinstall :)
