There are good reasons why so many Linux distributions are based on Debian.
Debian is a different when compared to other distributions. One way to show this difference is to say that Debian is to Linux distributions as McDonalds is to hamburgers. McDonalds will certainly sell you a hamburger, but it is also possible for McDonalds to teach you how to franchise their restaurant and make burgers yourself. So while you can certainly get a Debian GNU/Linux distribution, the hidden value of Debian is actually in learning how to make and control your own operating system using Debian's experience and tools.
