Ah I see. Well but ultimately that could mean harm to Debian, too. I guess most of us (as Debian and thus Linux or kFreeBSD users) think that those OSes are better than Windows/Apple. So if there's a distro that is very close to them... but still Linux like... it will draw considerable attraction... on things (users, developers, support) that will indirectly miss at other places (e.g. Debian)...
