Considering using Linux?

Firstly, may I apologise to the moderator if this is in the wrong section, please feel free to move it to the correct section. Just thought I'd post here as most new people to Linux may check here first. Anyone new to linux and wondering which to get may want to check out I came across the website today and was impressed. It has images of all the top distros and if you can't find what you are looking for you can request it (they might not add it mind you). They don't host the images they are effectively linked to the official sites but you will find some distro suitable for your needs. Same goes for anyone else who isn't new to linux but may want to try a different distro.

Yeah, that's a great site. Generally you'll get the fastest servers for the iso's, and you don't have to search mirror after mirror trying to get above 20k/sec

Another really good site that has a summary of most, if not all, Linux distributions is Click on a distribution icon and then read about it below. It's simple and fast. Enjoy!
