Imagine how self-righteous this sounds to a developer of Debian?  You freely 
admit you do not contribute to the Debian project and then raise the standard 
for the product they produce.  If it is so disagreeable a prospect to use 
Debian, then don't use it.  You seem to be intelligent, have a good writing 
style, and insight into the matter, perhaps you should do something about it?
