If you said Ubuntu, which you should have, you would be correct. The one and only Mark Shuttleworth just pointed this one out, and thought everyone might enjoy.
CRN recently ran a review, Which Free Linux Desktop is Best? (http://crn.com/sections/breakingnews/breakingnews.jhtml;jsessionid=BXCPDLXXMEZM0QSNDLSC KHA?articleId=192203540) CRN used a points system covering 3 different distributions across 5 different topics: Installation, Setup / Configuration, Support, Feature Set, and Usability. After reviewing each, a score was given, and then at the end all points were tallied up. Here is a breakdown of the points.

You all are the reason that Ubuntu keeps doing as well as it does. Without all of you, the tables could have very well been turned in this review, but with your hard work and dedication, Ubuntu keeps trucking along out front and in the lead.
To read this review in its entirety, head on over to the CRN and check it out (http://crn.com/sections/breakingnews/breakingnews.jhtml;jsessionid=BXCPDLXXMEZM0QSNDLSC KHA?articleId=192203540). Thanks to Mark Shuttleworth (http://www.markshuttleworth.com) for pointing this article out and recognizing the fact that CRN pointed out valid criticisms and strengths of each distribution and stated we need to address some of the items listed. Thanks again to everyone for making this possible!
