Is there a reputable alternative to "Distrowatch"?
 
Hello:

I was wondering if there are alternatives to "Distrowatch" where the various linux distributions are responsibly and unbiasly discussed?

Thanks,

How is it that you find Distrowatch biased or irresponsible?

if you want you can discuss distributions here.

Distrowatch does not discuss Distributions and is above all NOT biased at all. Distrowatch publishes news it received from various distro builders etc. Distrowatch weekly is a summary of all the week of that week, plus a little Q/A column by Jesse.
The comments (i guess you mean with discussions) added to some of the articles published, are pure comments. It's the reflection of readers, not the authors.

It isn't, to my knowledge, I was just looking for 'a second opinion'.

Robert,

As you could read, from other posts besides mine, your question looked like you are seeking for an alternative, which is not biased and more responsible in terms of context. And that would mean that Distrowatch is not being that, which is false.

But, alas, it now seems, we didn't interpreted your question/request correctly. :)

No need to feel upset.. mistakes are possible.
