Linux distributions comparison
As a Windows developer, I want to start developing on Linux - developing web apps using NetBeans, Ruby etc. I'm confused as to what to use - Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Lubuntu/Fedora/Debian...?! Why are there so many distributions of Linux? What's that about?
Appreciate it if someone could guide me on this.
Update: Thanks for all your answers. I installed Ubuntu and after about 30 minutes, the mouse freezes! Still looking for a fix :(
