I just read December's Linux Format. DSL got a page, with a newbie guide and a big screenshot :)

This sums up the harsh reality of being a Linux distro developer: the initial excitement over a new idea that leads to a successful release and some fame in the community is quickly replaced by frustration, exhaustion, boredom. Add to it the likelihood of having to spend time supporting the product and getting a few nasty emails from hard-to-please users, and the end result is not hard to predict. It takes a special individual to develop (and keep developing year after year) a successful distribution.
