    This might be true of other distributions where they just .tar.gz everything after a make install, but in Debian there’s a lot more work done on integrating packages and really solving problems.

    If they didn’t contribute much to the software there wouldn’t be any point in running Debian. If you use Debian, why do you do so if you don’t think much work goes into the packages? If you don’t use Debian, what do you base your accusations of delusions on?

    Heck, why do you visit Debian Planet if you’re just going to insult the developers?

    Some people do enjoy insulting.

    Let’s ignore this troll.

    Your logic is flawed. Just becuase the end system is better doesn’t mean it’s harder. I like my books bound together as opposed to a loose piles of random pages, this doesn’t mean the guy who makes the binding is more important than the author.
