A distro-tan is a rendition of a distribution of Linux. A distribution is a compilation of software around the Linux-kernel, as well as an installer and a package management system to install/uninstall software. There are countless different Linux-distributions, so the work is nowhere near being finished. Generally, most distro-tans look similar due to being based on the same kernel, but there are some remarkable exceptions. Nearly all of them carry a spear like the original Linux-tan.
