I don't think that _is_ necessary, everybody has digested the various comments in the thread, and I'd rather quench this kind of discussion than fuel it.
That's OK. But you judged without explaining.
OK, thanks for your perception, how about having some others ?
It is a bit hard to have many opinions because not many community users are involved or willing to be involved. That's why I suggested an objective comparison of the distributions (something already discussed right before 11.0 release). As pointed out, it's not going to be easy if you want a fair comparison, because it means that a set of independent users should try them on the same machine, comparing various aspects, some of which are subjective.
