Distributions

An interesting thing about Linux is that it is packaged and sold by many different groups, such as Red Hat, Mandrake, Debian and SuSe, who pick and choose among the currently available Linux components to create their distribution of Linux. They’re all Linux at the core, but differ slightly here and there.

For example, different distributions might choose to include features not included by others, or include newer (possibly less reliable) programs than others, or provide a more extensive help subsystem, or offer increased reliability due to extensive testing performed by those putting together the distribution. No particular distribution is necessarily better than others for all purposes – choosing a distribution is largely a matter of personal preference, and perhaps what is required by the application software you want to run, since not all Linux applications work on all distributions.
