I could not agree more. The current goals of the distributions seems to be:

1. Keep software from upstream updated downstream
2. Fix bugs

So my question, where are the goals regarding innovation and actually improving the feel of Linux instead of just "working with what we have". People say don't reinvent the wheel, but if your wheel has metal spikes coming out in odd places and is very hard to attach to your car, why the hell shouldn't it be reinvented??
