maybe Debian Desktop users can get a little more pimped, like showing off "Hey im using Debian, it is cool".
What are your thoughts on this?
I believe this is just a packet or a default left blank in Debian.
To me this screen adds nothing to the usability therefore it is not welcomed on my computer.
I want my computer to be a slave who obeys my will and never gets in my way.
Just to add a though without any condescending (i hope).
I believe it's the same when you visit a foreign country. When you see someone and wonder "Why does he do that?!", it is generally a good idea to immerse yourself a little more into the "culture" so that you understand the people constrains and needs.
The more you travel, the more you become "open" to foreign strangeness I believe.
Ubuntu, Mint and the like are about consuming i.e. "pleasing a random user", "get pimped?" or "focus_of_the_year=random()". Those distro are 99% of the eco-system out there. So this niche is covered.
Then you have those others distros that have a different focus. Debian is about stability, universality and usability for what I can tell.
