Default Redhat vs Debian

I have been playing around with Linux for a couple of years now. I found that there were 4 or 5 popular types.
Redhat and Debian are 2 that are very popular.

Excerpt: from Debian vs Red Hat.
Looking briefly at DistroWatch, I notice that five of the top ten distros are based on Debian. Two or three are based on Red Hat (depending on whether SuSE counts), and the remaining two are Slackware and Gentoo. Why are so many successful distros based on debian?
Interesting read. A bit technical for me. But I understood the gist of the article. I wonder what the rest of you think about it?
