    Choose a Linux?


    Hi,

    I thought, it is very well telling people who are new to Linux to go to distrowatch, or google it, but I thought we could make it a bit easier than that .

    I thought we could make a list, and add distribution testers to this thread, so it is an easy place for newbies to choose a distro ( and a few, to see if it really is right for 'em)

    So here it goes:
    www.tuxs.org/chooser
    www.zegeniestudios.net/ldc/
    eedok.voidofmind.com/linux/chooser.html

    Feel free to post more, in fact, please do! I will add them to this post as it goes along to make it a little tidier.

    http://www.tipmonkies.com/2005/06/16/linux-distros - Seems to be a decent site with info on it talking about the differences between some distros.

    As for that last distro chooser on your list (eedok.voidofmind.com/linux/chooser.html), I like it as it recommended Arch .

    Still, the post by sarumont is still good at pointing out resources (http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/topic-19023.html).

    Yeah it is, I wasn't saying it wasn't, I hope. I was just saying we could add some stuff to make it easier.
