If you found one, how would you know you could trust it to be current,
accurate, and reasonably unbiased?
The best way to arrivate at a comparison of the distributions is
install a few and compare. You might consider one of those jewel-case
CD-ROM collections of multiple distributions available from such
vendors as Infomagic.

Naturally, the unreasonable people will, being cooperative sorts,
disqualify themselves upon reading that request.
