"...just like you wouldn't expect the same from Debian, Slackware, or Gentoo."

Though you make a point the three projects you mentioned do not have as their goal to be the #1 desktop; they have one goal in mind: to be the best Linux possible for discriminating users of Linux.

I run Slackware and while it does not have a huge developer base, the developers it does have--in addition to Patrick Volkerding--all focus on making the best Linux possible for the end user who knows what they want.

Different distros have different constituencies so you can't paint them with w broad brush.
