Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm looking for a source of information about Linux distros, classified by tags as one would with blog posts for example. Actually, the more metadata the better: 32/64-bit, Window Manager, even maybe Usage Scenario (music, graphics, etc.)

Ideally, I'm searching for an API of this database of Linux distros that can be queried and used in an application.

Anything like that exists?
