Distro family tree?


Somewhere I've seek a Wiki entry or other webpage showing the relationship of many of the Linux distros, i.e., which ones have forked off from which ones, which ones are based on another, etc. I can't find the link, though. Does anyone know where I can locate this info? Thanks.

Thanks for that link. I think it will eventually become what I'm looking for.

Meanwhile, I turned up the site I had visited before:

http://distrowatch.com/dwres.php?resource=independence

I had trouble finding this site by the usual search techniques. Perhaps the page's author meant "interdependence" or "dependence", or perhaps he's using a pun that I've missed. Still, it's a very informative site, and could easily be used to help flesh out the family tree entry in the linuxquestions.org wiki.
