Nice work. But some queries/suggestions:

Why is Debian missing from the distro list? It is the free-est of
distributions (except for gnewsense and utoto, which are not
practical for fresh users). You can put it in the
Student/Developer list. And personally I feel opensuse should be
out, after the dirty deal between Novell and MS (this is not a
flamebait, just an opinion :-)

Do you really want to put fdisk as a basic command? Imagine the
disasters that may follow with newbies.

Also, one can add a short list of good Linux books that are
available. Most of these should be general Linux intros., but
there should also be one or two 'political' books, e.g.,
Stallman's "Free as in Freedom". I would be happy to provide a
short list of "beginner-to-intermediate" books I have found useful
and refer to frequently.
