New versions of Linux distributions crop up almost every week. On the one hand, it's great that development is so active, but on the other it can be difficult to wade through the options and find the one that suits you best. Most of us do not have the time to try out every new flavor, so we come to rely on reviewers to boil down the new releases for us. As a site that runs frequent distro reviews, NewsForge would like to give some advice to new distro reviewers -- pointers to get you started and help you write a concise, informative assessment that will benefit you and your readers alike.
