One thing they chose, is Indian city names.

One of them is Amritsar (the one chosen for Drupal). Compared to the other
two, it is indeed a crowded field.

Those of you old enough to remember, Amritsar is the city where the Golden
Temple (Harmandir Sahib) is, the most sacred shrine of the Sikh faith, and
the Akal Takht (the highest political institution for Sikhs). It was the
site of a big battle between the Indian Army and Sikh militants in the
1980s, and this is why Indira Ghandi was assassinated by her two Sikh
(See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Bluestar)

Incidentally, the "History" part misses all this

The other two cities are fairly obscure (outside of India at least).

So, the competition is not fair to start with. The Drupal site has to
contend with many links out there on a fairly well known city with recent
events, while the other two have no such competition.

Also the choice of themes shows Drupal in a really lesser light than the
other two. Friends Electric is cool as a "how to" theme, but is not good
looking at all.

(Sorry, this is the historian/geography buff in me talking).
