Don't just read this.. tell me why i'm wrong, give me real world examples of a Community driven distro which is doing all it can to innovate and provide the Linux community with a real world Linux desktop which can be used as an Ubuntu free alternative..

Or do we need one? should Fedora, Suse and Sabayon all pack up now? Should debian call it a day, let canonical swallow them up and We all back Ubuntu against Windows 8 and OSX ?

Is there more to the desktop linux world than this? Do we need niche players?
