take this little test to determine what distro might be right for you.

Please remember that this is not a scientific test, but a fairly "rough" test, to help aid newcomers in finding a distribution to use. We know there could have been more questions, tailored to more experienced users, but we have picked the ones we found most appropriate for newcomers.

We have a thread about this here:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/41001/which-distro-is-right-for-me/
Great little script for someone deciding which distro to go with.
But half the fun is loading and running different versions and finding out
which one fits best.
By the way the chooser didn't pick PCLinuxOS for me but that's what
i am using now and could not be happier.
