Tweaking and customization of a distro is a good thing - to the extent which is
needed (say, a lighter window manager for a lousy video card, alsa drivers for
an even lousier sound card, a newer kernel to support other stuff you need,
front end improvements such as a customized blackbox theme and bashrc file ..)

There's also tweaking something for the sake of tweaking it (though that's fun
as well).
