I am hoping to test at least one distro a week and post the results here in this topic.
I will be testing them on a variety of platforms and making brief reports. Please join me and try to chart the ever expanding distro space. The trouble with sites like distro watch is they include the descriptions of authors which tend to be very complementary of their distro.
I will be looking for easily installable distros with packages suitable for office work. They should be small and have a fast desktop that can run with minimal RAM. I would prefer Debian, source or Slackware-based distros, but reckon Debian distros will fit the bill best. Fast installation is also a priority.
