I came across an interesting website (polishlinux.org) that helps users decide which Linux distro to use. You can answer a set of questions, after which the site will provide recommendations; or you can do a comparison between two distros in such areas like installation, security/stability, and ease of configuraiton.
I am no hard-core techie, and my first personal in-depth foray into Unix was through Ubuntu. And I was totally impressed with the Ubuntu’s ease of installation and its user-friendliness. I was further surprised that there are even friendlier distros””particularly Mandriva and SUSE. And through VMware I am ready to try out these two other distros, without having to clobber my hard disk or do any sort of disk partitioning.
It’s a useful site””at least to provide an overview of the various Linux flavors. Take a look at the site and if you like it, digg it here.
