Here’s a cool online quiz that helps you determine which Linux distribution is right for you, based on a bunch of different criteria. You can even take it if you have no idea what a “Linux distribution” is. If you’ve been thinking about getting away from using Windows but either don’t know much about Linux or can’t afford a Mac (or both), this quiz is recommended.
The quiz paired me off with MEPIS (which I used to use) and Kubuntu. I just ripped out my Fedora Core installation a couple of days ago and replaced it with Kubuntu, and I’ve been pretty happy with it, so the quiz seems to be at least somewhat accurate. (More about my migration from Fedora to Kubuntu later.)
