I got 5. :P  The ones I got right were CentOS, MInt, Tails, Arch and SteamOS. (If I hadn't gotten that one, I'd have to have turned in my gamer card :P)

I never even heard of most of them.

Hi zebedeeboss,

I did this a couple of days ago and -- IIRC -- I think I got 14 correct. Two of the wrong ones I know very well but just drew a blank on them at the time.  ::) It's sort of like that with old girl friends too ...  :P They were nice at the time but I moved on...

Regards,

Linux Mint, BackTrack, Qubes OS, Tails and Arch Linux...

I think this says something about me (unrelated to the original question)!   :o
