Distrowatch - Summary of Latest news on Linux Distro

This is another good website for you to know about latest release on all linux distro available.

Description about this website as taken from its website.

"The DistroWatch web site was first published on 31 May 2001. The concept started as a very simple table comprising of 5 major distributions and the chart only compared a few features (price, version, release date) and a few package versions (Kernel, KDE, Gnome, XFree86, Apache). Trying to make it slightly more comprehensive and useful (and failing to find anything similar and up-to-date on the Internet), I have kept adding more distributions, features and packages until the table reached fairly reasonable state in terms of information provided. At that stage, I decided to share the table with the Linux community worldwide and moved it from a spreadsheet into an HTML document."

People behind distrowatch.com

"The site was established, developed and is maintained by Ladislav Bodnar, a Slovakian-born South African living in Taiwan. I attempted my first ever installation of a Linux operating system in April 1999. The Chinese say: "A one-thousand mile journey starts with a single step." Those first steps were not very easy, but the journey itself has been full of pleasant surprises, even joys and, most importantly, it has been a journey of freedom. Linux is great and this site is just a small contribution to all who enjoy it. DistroWatch has a number of active contributors - among them Dr Zhu Wen Tao, a member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing, China, Susan Linton, the founder and webmaster of Tuxmachines.org, Chris Smart, the developer of the Kororaa distribution, and Robert Storey, a former writer of travel guide books and an ardent reviewer of Linux distributions."
