There are many Distros of linux out there.
Some of the major distros are, RedHat (Fedora for community), Mandrake, Suse, Debian, Slackware etc.
There are a lot of minor distros like Yoper, Gnoppix, Knoppix (Not minor any more), Ubuntu, Amigo, MEPIS, etc.

Untrue. Linux is a kernel that was created originally by Torvalds.
The distribution is the kernel and a set of utilities which comprise the operating system.
You can find a good list of distributions in our LQ Wiki or at Distrowatch.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

The second thread is http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=302619 and answers in at are a good addition to the ones here. I've moved this thread to Linux-General to be merged.
