The HomeDistro site reviews Linux distributions and ranks them for home PC use. Helpful tips and package suggestions are offered plus there is a forum to allow imput.
"long with a collection of up-to-date applications, the latest kernel, video support, a choice of window managers (KDE, GNOME, Xfce, IceWM, etc.) and Adminmenu's comprehensive system tools, Libranet 2.7 provides a smooth ride to high-power Debian Linux for both the neophyte and the experienced user."
Lycoris Desktop/LX 'Amethyst Version'
"Personally, I feel that if Lycoris fixes the annoying installation and font rendering bugs, add better 3D support and overall OS speed, offer more applications via IRIS, polish a bit more the UI and add some of the pref panels that their competition has, we are seriously looking at a very promising (and fearsome by their competitors :) operating system"
Yellow Dog Linux 3.0
"I would say that YDL is ideal for exploring Linux, since it has a nice out-of-the-box experience. I can't say that the performance is any better than Mac OS X on the same machine, but the visual appearance is excellent and a nice antidote when the sticky-candy look of Mac OS X begins to grate on you."
