So Many Choices, Even Greater Confusion
(UPDATED July 7, 2006)

In an earlier piece in this blog, we discussed how to test Linux using a live CD. This would allow you to evaluate the OS without destroying the contents of your hard disk.

Let's supposed you've tested a live CD and liked what you saw, but wanted to research further which distro is the most suited for your needs. The Linux Distribution Chooser will help you. We tried it under a couple of scenarios and it seems to do the job okay. At worst, it will guide you better as to how to prioritize your needs when selecting a distro.

UPDATE: If you still need more guidance, SearchOpenSource.com has a page discussing the most popular distros, accessible by clicking here.
