I don't believe a flame war is coming.

Why should it do that? Unless _you_ start it?

It's an okay introduction. It should have mentioned more than these pretty mainstream distros but apart from that, it's doing quite fine.

BTW: If somebody else comes along and starts a flame war, then I'm truly sorry. I believe there's a need for a "Get Linux Going Easily" - guide thing.
