That's certainly the plan.

Self-interest (enlightened, if possible) is the best driver there is.  Pure
selflessness isn't really in vogue any more, and I don't think it works
really well without an external influence to keep your focused anyway.

Assuming you meant s/many/many more/ I'd say that your statement is only
true if you take the aggregate of those distributions you mentioned.  Not
that might makes right, but Debian people tend to be more "participative"
(how's that for a euphemism!) in online fora, so you're naturally going to
get more noise about that distro.
