Overall, I think it's a pretty good list. It gives some basic details about each distro, though I think it would have been better if links to the home pages of each distro had been included to make it easier to get more information.

The list works well if you're wondering what some of the basic differences are between so many different distros. Plus, it has some distro spins that you might never have heard of before.

One minor quibble about this article, it would be great if the editors bolded the categories within the article. You have to look closely to see the category titles, and that's never a good thing. Readers should be able to move from section to section or scan the article page to find the category that interests them.
