"Yet, the age old question 'so, which Linux flavor should I get?' keeps popping up and as far as I know, other than basic reviews of new shrink-wrapped versions, few have stood up and given a straight answer. People who finally accept the reality that Linux is better, and are ready to use it, hound me almost weekly. They stop by the message boards or my office and ask, 'So which one do I get?' As if to say, 'now that I have finally come around to agree with you about Linux's greatness I need to get a simple answer.'

"I respect their desire and want to help them badly. It's obviously something in need of a concrete answer. Our message boards have more hits on the ONE single forum 'which Linux flavor to get?' than ALL of the rest of the hits to the boards combined!

"So the big people here at reallylinux.com grabbed me one evening, as I was finishing up and trying to wash my hands, and pushed me against the stall door with a word of advice I have heeded. 'We want you to be the scape goat and write an article on which Linux flavor to get, and have it ready for publishing ASAP or this bathroom becomes your office...!'"
