Well, I explained it several times, pls excuse me if it wasn't clear
enough for you.

1. The poll is based on average user's postings over several years -
you often read things like "I don't want that distribution because it
does not....". So the goal was to put all these points into a list and
let those same average users name what a distribution MUST have to
become/stay their distribution. I stressed the point that I'm looking
for functions, not single packages.

2. If a resonable number of people (100-150, that's more than the
active number of forum users) would have voted I could list the
options, ordered by percentage of votes to give an impression of the
distribution seen from the user side. Not more, no less. This
impression may add to all other sources of information for those who
actually work on the distribution.

Hopefully I have done better this time. It's not always easy to
explain such non-technical matters to somebody who sees all things
from a technical point of view only (we have been there, remember?).
