Linux distro chooser
Linux comes in various flavours called distros. Distrowatch has been keeping track of various distros. However, finding a suitable distro is usually difficult, especially for newbies. They find it difficult to link the description of distros and their criteria of choosing a distro. Distros usually describe their package management systems, desktop environments, or their particular purpose. However, users want descriptions explaining ease of usage. [Basically, the learning curve for linux is steep.] However, here is a site that tries to link user criteria with description of distros. The results are not very satisfying, yet it is worth trying. Moreover as it is available in a number of languages, non-english speakers can benefit from it.
