Jason is absolutely right here and none of these factors really matter. The best thing to do would be to try a few distrobutions from different roots out and see which set of software tools you prefer, then you can select that distro branch to explore. For instance, Red Hat based distros have different package management tools as well as different service management than Debian based distros. Personal preference comes into play at this level.

The only thing that binds all Linux Distributions together is the kernel. The application base, package management tools, support offerings, look and feel are the attributes that make each distribution unique. There are distributions that have evolved from the same branch such as Redhat, CentOS and Fedora or Debian, Ubuntu and gOS. Please give a more specific question.
