7 distros are put into the steel cage and the last one standing wins the distribution smackdown championship belt, looooool. this is a great article for new users or even veteran users. it's in the april issue of tux magazine. the mag used to be free but you can still get a free copy (i think). it's going to be subscription very soon. go to the website and enter your email and you can download any one of 15 issues. you may still be able to subscribe for free. i'm not sure about this tho. this article is in the april number 12 issue. it's a 2.0mb pdf file. excellent reviews of 7 leading distros. the winner is mandriva. i'm not spammin for this mag i'm just posting a good article.

mandriva says "shut your mouth and know your role" to the other distros and snatches the Distribution Smackdown championship belt.
