PC World: Ubuntu Linux has been deemed one of PC World's Best Products of the Year for two years running. Why? It's completely free, it installs easily from one downloadable CD, and it focuses on user-friendliness.
apcmag: It was with much anticipation that we nabbed the new Fedora Core 7 Live CD in the hope of checking it out first before installing it. Unfortunately, the live CD had other plans.
Granular Linux is a Linux distribution based on PCLinuxOS and features the XFCE4 and KDE desktops. It appears to have been in development since about the beginning of 2007 and has had one previous release.

polishlinux.org: I started using Ubuntu Linux just when this distribution first appeared, 3.5 years ago with Warty Warthog. Since then I upgraded the system more or less regularly every six months, following the Ubuntu release cycle. I had to clean install only once since two years ago I changed my laptop.
