Even from the technology viewpoint the Linux desktop is well developed, feature rich and mature. What adds to the merit is the low cost, better security and manageability. It's also well suited to a wide range of customer deployments.

We delved into the Linux distributions for desktop computing and queued up a list of top 5 distros.
