Does any good comparison exist (like a table of present features) between the many Linux distributions?

What are the features and advantages on each distribution? (Ubuntu, Fedora, CentOS, etc.)

What choice is better for what kind of user profile?

Wikipedia has a good comparison table of Linux distributions. Also, DistroWatch has an overview of the top ten distributions.

That top ten overview on DistroWatch is awesome, good call. –  Jeremy Reagan Aug 26 '09 at 15:23

+1 for Distrowatch. I'd consider the wikipedia comparision page pretty much useless in helping to decide among distros. –  nagul Aug 26 '09 at 15:59

Not quite what you asked for, but this is a really hand test to help you pick:

My 3 choices for Linux (I don't understand why the others Linux' exist):

  • SliTaz: for an old PC/laptop or any live CD/DVD/USB as it can remaked and shared easily.

  • Ubuntu: the most used Linux by everyone and they are right.

  • Arch Linux: if you want a professional setup don't seek anywhere else.
