Well, I think the OP as a point, I don't see so many Panasonic fanboys, Olympus fanboys are a larger number, maybe it is because Olympus is an older brand, and many came from the past, even from the film days

I agree - 10 years ago Lumix was a P&S brand (making cameras for Leica like Minilux as well, so do have some heritage) whereas Minolta and others are absorbed into other brands. I think Lumix et al has acheived a lot to come from the back to be in the top few and is a creditable success. Also, brought new ideas and approaches to the industry. Yeah I have a couple of Pany cameras and biased - but they work for me, I spent hours in angush wondering whether to go for the E-series but Pany is what I chose - I still want a Fuji rangefinder but its just not an attractive option right now.
