A lot of Distros and configuration doesn't show the Distro, so, why RPM?

Because those that do, are debian based.

Please don't start a "religious" rpm/deb war.

usually don't.

I don't mind having the script default to deb, as long as I have the
option to choose a different version to download. :)

I think I am capable enough to decide which package to download for
