Perhaps, but then what about openSUSE (about 1.5 years), Ubuntu (1 year), 
Ubuntu LTS (4.5 years) and CentOS (more than 4 years)? I can't compare with 
Gentoo, and then we get to Slackware (which I don't know about). So in 
general, Debian is worst than others.

I'm convinced that there's no reason to be proud, so I see no need to discuss 
it, unless you're confident that Debian should be proud. It can be removed 
anyway on the grounds that our users don't need to know whether the project 
is proud.
