I always ask myself why people waste time discussing / fighting over 
useless talks rather than spending this time on something productive. 
Ubuntu, Redhat, Debian, Fedora, Mint, Gentoo are all based on Linux. 
Linux is their heart, lungs, legs, arms etc but they all have different 
shapes, sizes etc like human beings do.

Example- How many people like beer? Beer is beer right? Thunderbolt is 
beer, haywards is beer, tuborg is beer, kingfisher is beer. Now all 
these are beer brands, do they have to write on labels everywhere that 
they are beer. When someone goes to wineshop and asks for haywards, the 
guy on counter knows he is asking for beer. Linux and all other 
derivatives are same. Gnome, KDE, Gimp etc are all part GNU/Linux.

If we all have to contribute to FOSS or GNU/Linux then just pick what 
you like and start contributing towards it.
