Installing Linux: life is too short to stuff a mushroom

Author: JT Smith

From LinuxToday Australia: "Author Shirley Conran once said, 'Life is too short to stuff a mushroom.' And so it is. Life is also too short to evaluate
umpteen different Linux distributions. Nevertheless, over the past 18 months I've done exactly that.

Testing a range of distributions is not as daft as it might appear. In my case, I can partly justify my actions because I
write about Linux and need a more complete understanding of the market. I also have very specific needs so finding the
optimum distribution required trial and error. The other thing is that I'm just plain curious."
