I strongly agree with this.
This is very annoying to see manufacturers shipping their own wobbly
linux distro, while there is the "universal OS project" (aka. Debian)
that has everything one need and is very well tested and supported.
Adding your own stuff on top of a mere Debian (or alike) seams so much
simplier than packaging your own stuff from scratch that I can't
come with no reason to do so, technically speaking.

For instance I bough an asus aspire one recently : a very good piece
of hardware bundled with a very poor version of Linux.
