The Best Distribution?


I know ALL newbies want to know this answer, but I have a feeling it may be more complicated at second glance... This hopefully will become a very helpful thread.

Different distributions maybe be good at some things, and bad at others. I hope to cover all pros and cons of the main distributions, such as Slackware, SUSE, Fedora, Mandriva, Ubuntu, and Debian; and maybe take a glance at the latent power of smaller, less commercialized Distributions as well.

Valete,
Vince
