It's only something to gain some extra popularity.
Baah. You say they did it for publicity, I say they did it to promote your live-cd. For one day, people had to seek for an alternative, which happens to be your distro
Now, if you want publicity, go ahead and start a flamewar with them. Be as mature as you think they are. But remember what they say about fools..
..you start fighting with them, they drag you to their level and beat you with experience.
Of course, if both of the distros feel like they need publicity, the flamewar will happen. Not because either of the men running those distros want it to happen, but because they need it to happen. They need publicity and what's better way to have it, than having an open war? Public sees two dogs fighting, while the two dogs see giant audience downloading both of the distros. They keep on fighting, untill one of them is "dead"..by the time one of them is dead, beaten, they both have strong group of people supporting them.
Yeah. I don't do marketing. I am marketing. Seeing corporate behaviour models breeding in linux society makes me sick.
