I understand the advice to save time, but one of the biggest reasons for
Linux distribution isn't an answer to the question "Why?" but rather "Why
not?". Even if I were to tell the people working on this distribution that
they are re-creating the wheel, they would still do it for the learning

For me, contributing to smaller distributions is a great way to cut my
teeth without an army of hundreds of contributors doing everything first. I
see this as an interesting opportunity to share, it's a good way to learn
how Linux distributions work too.
