    For those wondering this ranking system is for the OSFirstTimer forums. Oh btw next week on the OSFirstTimer YouTube channel expect to see an Ubuntu 13.10 review. I'll make sure I point out the new scopes in dash and also go over the heads up display (I know it's not a new feature but I haven't gone over it before).

    Anyway thanks again Ubuntu community
    Please clearly label the review as for "Desktop".
    Lots of us have left the "Desktop" and only run Ubuntu Server these days to avoid the latest abominations from Canonical's GUI designers.

    The difficulty of Slackware tends to be a little overstated sometimes. With a full installation and boot straight into kde there are not usually all that many problems. Perhaps a little tinkering is required but even so...
    You think that's air you're breathing now?

    Greetings,
    Puppy Linux at the top of the list? Just try to get a bluetooth mouse working in any of the default versions of Puppy. Correction: Just try to get a bluetooth stack working in Puppy. After you surrender that idea, start counting the days until you corrupt your entire setup. On the positive side, if you are a beginner you WILL learn how to get a wifi card working before you are bald, unless you just don't need internet!

    Regarding slackware at the end of the list! I have wondered why a bunch of "Terminal" enthusiasts would create the beautiful GUI that is in Slax 14 and then leave the ones most likely to need it (beginners) with nothing. In their defence, it's been a while since I've tried Slax. What I saw was nice, just couldn't get it working.

    IMHO, Ubuntu belongs at the top of the List. Thats why I'm here!

    @12padams; Nice list! I like it!
