You have been a valuable member to the community and your teams posts and tools are helpful to many however what balding parrot is trying to say is true. I would be willing to bet ( and feel free to test this) That if you go to another security distros form and try to advertise your distro it will probably not go so well. If I were you, instead of making my own distro I would have submitted my tools for consideration with bt4 (which you can still do if you want to contact me via PM). What you're doing is saying backtrack is not good enough so I built my own. I just went through this with another member who wanted to build a Backtrack "ubuntu" version. Its just considered bad form or etiquette to advertise your security distro on this site. I hope you will not leave our community due to this trivial matter.
Also just to reply to the apple/microsoft analogy, it is sort of the same because the offensive-security courses are a business that some people who run it make their living from. When people become interested in backtrack we direct them to the offsec courses to learn how to use this powerful tool so in some way, yes you are competition.
