Isn't it??? The day the flow of developers goes towards .NET, the Java 
advantage will disappear as well, the community will dry up of fresh blood.

The attitude "We don't want new people use our product." won't help the 
community.

Reflecting of what others have said about "purpose" and Stefano's "hammering" 
of his stand-point, we are really trying to solve the impossible.

So, after much consideration, I think Stefano has a point that if we start 
with the "community distro", specialized to make the "understanding" user's 
life easier, we can later worry about other distros, perhaps in the same 
shape as Linux does it, third-party support.
