Linux is like autism. It is a wide spectrum (or fractal tree), in which variables such as objectives, specialized abilities, compatibilities, and social appeal are distributed in random degrees and mixtures.

Some distributions are "high-functioning" - that is, they are compatible with a majority of hardware, software, and user environments. There are more specialized distros, and then there are the "low-functioning" builds, that need special care.
