A sweet selection of tasty Raspberry Pi distros via techradar.com:

The Raspberry Pi phenomenon appears to go from strength to strength; like a runaway train, it’s ploughing ahead and forging itself a place in the record books.

It’s hardly surprising – the hardware alone is developed perfectly for the goals of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, the pricing is pitched perfectly, and having the unique versatility of Linux as the operating system seals the deal nicely.

Most buyers, once they get their hands on their new RPi, make a move towards the official Raspberry Pi site and follow the getting started instructions therein; the end result is the user running Raspbian “Wheezy”, the Foundation’s recommended operating system, creating, learning and programming, and strapping the poor wee beast onto a weather balloon and sending it to the outer edge of the atmosphere.

What many RPi users don’t realise, though, is that there’s a wealth of other operating systems available for their beloved Pi. We thought, therefore, that those users who aren’t aware of these other sweet toppings for the Raspberry Pi need to be informed, and what’s more, they need to have a chocolate box selection presented to them.
