Actually, it's funny

Whatever the hiped distro of the year is, it attracts new users that
defend it with the faith of new converts. Used to be Mandriva, then
Gentoo and now Ubuntu. They all settle down after a while, and don't
need Fedora-bashing to assert themselves.

Witness the very tame messages of this year's Gentooers/Mandrivers.
