That is not strictly true.  You can have a distro without users --
nobody but you would be using it -- it's still a distro.  It all depends
on what you expect out of the project.  I think Sejo's got the right
idea this time -- this distro is just a community, and that's how it's
run (well, it's run more like a commune, but anyway).  If it were run
like a business, the behaviour would be a lot different (and a lot more
closed).  For starters, there would actually be a leadership situation
in place.  You can argue that Gentoo *began* its life as a business, but
the past three years have been far removed from that paradigm.
