What most people forget when they look at WordPress' theme gallery is  
that WordPress is meant to do one thing and one thing alone : serve  
as a blog. Drupal, with all it's potential uses needs to show and  
demonstrate all the potential purposes and uses for the software  
through it's distributions but more importantly the themes :

Can you get a Meetup.com or Yahoo!Groups design with a distro focused  
on the calendar, forums and the use of mailhandler and listhandler?

Can you get a Evite distro with a special theming of events?

Can you get a nice ecommerce theme?

How about an online newspapery theme with aggregator2?

How about a MySpace theme and distro?

BTW, wasn't MySpace initially created with Drupal? I seem to remember  
it looking really Drupal-like at the beginning.
