I tried that and 3 of the 5 recommendations are distros I'd already discounted during the questioning. 2 of the 4 follow ups I hate and it completely failed to list any of the distros I do run (of which there are a few).

I guess that sort of site might be good if you're a complete n00b but for anyone who's used Linux more than a year, it's completely worthless.

6 results of 100% isn't helpful.
Interestingly, I have quite heavily used the 2 distros for which it showed a 90% match.

It's worse than that, 3 the 5 100% matches I had, I'd already discounted during the questioning phase.
