distribution in terms of usage.

don't forget ubuntu server is mostly debian. They have all the kind of
developpers that are specially reluctant to work for a major sponsor
like suse or red hat

I wouldn't say they have "developers reluctant to work for RH or SUSE", rather I'd say, Debian has contributors that a weary of working within a dependent community such as openSUSE or Fedora.

We can have a separate discussion about this dependence, but that should be in a different thread and considering the importance of this and the follow on messages shold probably take place at another time as well.

ubuntu, Mint, many others, have foundations on free developpers and
build upon them. This have (for ubuntu, for example) the disavantage
than the user base is very fluid. I my vicinity, many ubuntu users went
to Mint (and some to openSUSE :-)

I have to say than the ubuntu present problems makes it openSUSE life
much easier. ubuntuers used to be very depreciatives againsts the other
distros, this do not happen anymore

Yes, the are experiencing the side effects of being a dependent community.
