The best linux distro for desktop - Linux mint 12 "Lisa"
Linux mint 12 "Lisa"  is the best linux distribution currently available.Linux mint 12 features gnome 3 with mint shell extensions.It is called as "Cinnamon".It is very easy to switch back to gnome 3 from cinnamon by just disabling some of the extensions.Cinnamon looks like gnome 2 with the bottom taskbar,but it also has the new shell features of gnome 3.So many people who love the look of old gnome will taste the nostalgia.

The best linux distro for laptops - Opensuse 12.1
Opensuse12.1 comes with gnome 3.2 and latest color management tools.It is the best laptop edition with great power management,easy to use wireless tools,docking tools etc.As laptop users are very much concerned about the battery life,opensuse delivers the best way to make use of your laptop.

Arch linux gives the best way to customize your desktop.Arch installation guide helps even the beginners to install their favourite linux distro.Although the arch installation process is a hard thing,you will get satisfied once you get through.Arch installation is a text based installation,so most of the beginners get disappointed with the guide.But it is very simple if you read the installation guide thoroughly.

Fedora 16 comes with gnome 3.2.As far as my experience fedora provides better gnome 3 experience than opensuse default.Fedora now acts like a flagship of gnome 3.

A live cd should be fast and simple and CTKArch meets these two criterias,It is based on arch and uses openbox.The CTKArch team claims a 10-15 seconds boot time on netbooks.

    It would be rather helpful to see which Linux distributions were evaluated for each of the applications. Identifying one distribution as the "best" without understanding which others were also evaluated will discredit the study.

  5. is there any customize software for fedora just like there is for Ubuntu. I am looking to customize Fedora

  6. i'm running a pentium 3 desktop, with Slitaz linux. works good.
