A Linux distribution is like a religion. If you’ve ever tried to suggest to another person that his or her choice of a distro might not be the best, then you know what I mean. Even if you haven’t, you have probably come across a “distribution opinion war” on one of the mailing lists or public forums. But that’s OK.

Personal opinions may vary, but facts are a lot more difficult to dispute… See Linux Distributions – Facts and Figures (mirror-au, mirror-hu, mirror-us) by DistroWatch, one of the main Linux distribution news sites on the web.
