Hey ppl,
I am novice to Linux.. And have a question like how does distribution differs when it comes to application level.

For e.g PDAs and mobiles use embeded Linux

Can someone explain same for DVR, desktop and mid-range computers
???

embeded linux is made to work on embeded devices, not computers.

For desktop and midrange computers, any major linux distribution must work. You have to try a few distributions as each distribution will have good and not so good features for you.

Now, you you want to do a multimedia workstation, you have to look for a multimedia distribution. It must have a realtime or multimedia kernel, and be optimized for the kind of work you want to do.

Audio work and video work don't have exactly the same optimizations. For audio, the best are studio 64, musix, planet ccrma or even gentoo with the pro audio overlay.

For video work, it is best at someone else answer.

Actually it all comes down to ur own taste
Wat i like may not be very attractive to u.
I like Gentoo LFS and Slackware the best for their level of customization and optimizations posiible accorsing to ur tase but not everybody would like having to spend so much time installing them.

A Linux distribution (also called GNU/Linux distribution by some vendors and users) is a member of the family of Unix-like software distributions built on top of the Linux kernel. Such distributions (often called distros for short) consist of a large collection of software applications such as word processors, spreadsheets, media players and database applications. The operating system will consist of the Linux kernel and, usually, a set of libraries and utilities from the GNU project, with graphics support from the X Window System. Distributions optimized for size may not contain X, and tend to use more compact alternatives to the GNU utilities such as Busybox, uClibc or dietlibc. There are currently over six hundred Linux distributions. Over three hundred of those are in active development, constantly being revised and improved.
