Because Potato is awesome?  Potato was the first Linux distribution I
used and will always hold a special place in my heart.  I don't know
it as anything but Potato.  I willingly will admit I used Potato, and
would gladly go back if there were no security or compatibility
issues.

Not to mention potatoes are tasty and a good source of fiber and other
nutrition. ;)
