What Linux distro? And why so many of 'em?

Keeping up with the multiple distro releases is an impossible job for
most people, there's so many distros! From this week's Distro Watch
there were 3 distros released last week and another is upcoming. That's
just for one week! There's a top 100 distros and there's many more than
that... And yet most people outside of Linux have heard of at most just
/two/ OSes/systems...

So why?

And how?

And how to choose?

Are we in the midst of a Cambrian explosion of Linux?

And if you have any hardware you'd like help with to install a distro,
you're welcome to bring it along. (Backup any data /first/ ...)
