This should be a community wiki question. –  invert Aug 16 '10 at 8:31
@KeyboardMonkey: sure, what should I do? –  elmarco Aug 16 '10 at 8:37
This isn't a proper question, not even CW. Compare two distros, maybe. Tell me about one, sure. "Give me a giant list that are sure to have many duplicates and knockoff answers" – No. –  Josh K Aug 16 '10 at 14:10
@Josh K I disagree. This could be a very useful question, as a CW. Sorting through all the flavors to discover which best suits you is difficult. Having one question where users can place what they view as the pros and cons or strengths and weaknesses of each distro would be extremely useful. And there are precedents for CW questions like this on other SE sites. –  Daniel Bingham Nov 25 '10 at 17:32
@Daniel: There are entire websites dedicated to this, why confine it to a question here? –  Josh K Nov 25 '10 at 19:47
