Default Article on Best Linux

Is this article of any use in helping a newbie get started with Linux? Which is the best Linux distro?

Sure beats the pick and miss from DistroWatch which is what I used.

Thanks for the link.

The problem as I see it is folks will inevitably go for a mainstream product because that is what they come across first. IMO this is a bad move. I can guarantee that many more potential users would stick with Linux if they tried Korora instead of Fedora, Stella instead of CentOS, LuninuX or certainly Solus 1.2 which is to Debian what Mint is to Ubuntu.
