Question Which are some general differences between linux distros


I would like to know some general differences between the different linux distributions . I have Xandros, Knoppix, Red Hat 8 & 9, and Slackware. I'm using now RH 8, but i would like to know which one is better. I have tested them all, but i see them similar, obviously because i am really a newbie.

First of all, read this sticky at the top of this forum: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=103564

Now I'm moving this thread to our distribution forum where we have this sticky: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=20451

And many others asking this same question.

Regards.

Not an idiot question, just asked far too many times really.

We don't delete posts and this post has already been moved as you can tell.

Regards.
