I use it daily and for trivial upgrades.

Not efficient to have multiple choices. Debian, please choose one and
deprecate the others.

Debian is all about multiple choices. Debian tries to include everything that meets the DFSG, from choice of init system, filesystems, servers, to desktop. Debian is inclusive.

Choice reduces happiness:

For enhanced new-user happiness, other distributions provide more curated selections. Once users have become accustomed to a curated subset, the breadth and flexibility of Debian makes it easy to reproduce a selection found in a more limited distribution.

I patiently await your hate mail.

You did not mention systemd; no hate mail for you!  ;-)
