What is typical for each Linux distribution?

There are severak LINUX distributions. (Suse, Mandrake, Red Hat ,...)

My question is : In what are each of these distributions specialized ?

Or with other words :
Why should I go for Suse ?
Why should I go for Red Hat ?
Why should I go for Debian ?
Why ...

Does it actually matter what distritbution I take ?
