100 Great reasons to use Linux!

Well, in fact, there may be more. But, here I am giving you the list of top 100 Linux distributions – they are tailor made for your different requirement. Just hunt down a little and you will get a Linux distribution that will perfectly suit your Hardware-Software requirement.

For example, I tried Ubuntu, Fedora, Mandriva, Knoppix but finally settled for Sabayon because it had most drivers for my LAPTOP COMPAQ PRESSARIO V3000. It had out of the box support for most hardware including Nvidia 3d Graphic.

Here is the list : (List courtesy http://distrowatch.com/)
