Linux: Which Flavor of Linux is Right for You?

As a dedicated reader of OSNews.com and a VP of Technology for an IT firm that specializes in utilizing Open Source solution for small business, I
have been amazed at the rash of some reviews on the various distros of Linux and their failure to really help readers make a choice on what they
should use or try. Linux has really matured in the desktop arena and in alot less time than Windows took to do so.

I've been trying, and I mean really trying to select a version of Linux to use at home, but with much disappointment. This isn't a review, it an
opjective professional opinion based on 3 years of real experimentation with Linux as a 'average home use' OS. I will also point out that I am not a
fan of Windows and use only Linux now in the work environment. I was a convert from the NT/2000 world who learned Linux like most people I know, in
whatever spare time they had. I love Linux, and as a server OS, uneaqualed. Linux is an OS that with a professional with the right skills, can be
shaped to perform just about any task, very well. Now we professionals have to do the hardest task there is, make it easy enough to please everyone.

To make this easier for readers, consider this a guide to a finding a Linux distro that will fit your needs and help you have a better experience with
Linux.
