CNET Reviews the Major Distributions

CNET, the great content creator of the net, has a nice article on how the major distributions rate for the average consumer interested in running Linux. Keep in mind that CNET is not rating these distributions purely on a server or workstation perspective. It's a great way to see the relative strength and weaknesses of each distro. Emphasis seems to be on ease of installation. In case you were wondering, Corel Linux came out on top for the average user interested in dipping a toe in Linux.
