Linux distribution choosing made easy

One common complaint people have about Linux is that there are too many distributions to choose from. In response to this complaint, here is a simple list telling you what Linux distribution you should use:
  • If your computer was made in the last three years, get Ubuntu
  • If your computer is between three and six years old, get Xubuntu
  • If your computer is anything older, and is a 486 with 16 or megabytes of ram or better, get DeLi Linux
  • If your computer is even older than that, choosing which Linux distribution to use should be the least of your worries. Computers that old are usually falling apart; it can be nay-to-impossible to get an antique like that to power on, much less install Linux on
