-Debian
-Ubuntu

guess cause I answered 'apt-get' as favorite package management (how can one not like apt?)

Ok although this link is cool to test what you would get, and by the way, very predictable the result, its meant to give for those people still wondering what distro they should use, instead you say all the good and bad about each of them.

Found it pretty interesting, Im wondering how good it will be for true linux starters.

The thing I am woundering is if they're true starters and dunno what apt-get/yum/portage etc are.. what they will choose .. and as we've seen above the package management system you choose return results with the distro's using this most of the time..
