Debian and Red Hat and Slackware prevalence

I've been noticing quite in interesting trend, lately.

Seems most newbies to Linux, way back when, would use
Slackware. 'cause that was the only thing available.

Nowadays, since you can buy Red Hat at Fry's, and Egghead, and every
other electronics store in the US, it seems there are throbbing hordes
of newbies running it. (At least that's what I've determined in
comp.os.linux.misc :)

But! On the linux-kernel developers' list, most people are talking
about Debian.

Perhaps Debian's becoming the developers' OS of choice, while Red Hat
is replacing Slackware as the introduction to Linux.
