No, lots of people use Debian because it has a large number of packages and 
its stability. It is simply not true that Debian is more "free" than others. 
openSUSE, Fedora and Mandriva all have releases which are equally "free".

Both openSUSE and Fedora while started by corporate entities, have explicitly 
made re-distributable "re-spins" of their distro available.
