What's the best distribution?

All is true. 
Different distributions tend to be popular in different segments.
Red Hat is the market leader. Some people refer to Linux 8.0 when they 
really mean Red Hat. Like any market leader their distro it broadly 
SuSE tends to be preferred by engineers. 
Mandrake by new users. 
Debian is popular with the technical people and those who are very much 
Open Source oriented. 
Lindows is used by Wal Mart customers (I'll say no more).
