Default A Comparison of Linux Desktops

Do you enjoys trying out different Linux distros? Do you have dozens of live CDs lying around?

If you can answer yes to both questions you may want to take a look at this article on Wikipedia.
Comparison of X Window System desktop environments

I like trying a couple of new Distro's a week and have now been using a USB stick instead of CDs when possible. This article may help give you a peak at what you can expect.

Thanks for these links. I changed my setup at the weekend when my wide screen packed up and I was forced to use a standard monitor. Mageia looks by far the best for my eyes at this resolution.
