mega multi-boot question


i have a 1TB external hard drive and i am going to shrink it's partition so i can install as many flavours of Linux as necessary to get the best of the Linux world.

currently i have ubuntu and win7 installed on my internal hdd

now, my question to everyone is which AND how many distro's should i install onto the external hdd, AND why the distro's recommended vs others?

since ubuntu is debian-based i am looking for some more alternatives to ensure i get the best of Linux, but i'm not striking out other debian / ubuntu based distro's from the picture.
