It's worth mentioning how much of a bother having to support n distros 
is. Last year we picked Fedora Core as our distro, but of course people 
turned up and wanted Mandrake 9 or 10, or Debian, or whatever else.  It 
significantly increases load on the people doing the work, it increases 
loading on the Internet uplink (hard to precache things when you have no 
idea what people might be getting), and ends up meaning people get a 
worse deal from it.
