With the problem of having experienced people leaving, because "mandrake
is a distribution for newbie, i am not a newbie, therefor, mandrake is
not for me". This surely helped debian or fedora to get contributers.
I have too often seen "the distribution work fine, but I wanted to try
something else" ( or various stuff like summarized on
http://www.greenfly.org/mes.html ), which is to say that the first
distribution never get the benefit of making people switch to free
software, which is bad.
