Because many Linux users prefer to create an end-user solution themselves, using a
toolkit. They need a distribution that is a toolkit from which they can quickly generate a
solution for any purpose.

A specialized distribution would be a solution for a specific task. It would be usefull for
the people that it is targetted to, however, those people usually are not the people that
are adventurous enough to try Linux. Instead, a Linux wizard usually rolls out a solution
for such a person, but that guru wants a complete toolkit with everything included.
