It's a nicely laid out site and a good idea. I think your biggest issue is the nerd/non-nerd population.
For example, I'm a nerd, I love reading that 70% of web servers run Linux, I know the difference between an operating system and a toaster, I know that the kernel is not in the army.
For me, the site would tempt me to try Linux, and being my curious nerdy self, would be (as I was) quite happy spending hours googling for more information on setting it up.
I think you average Joe is going to read, possibly get curious, and suddenly hit a brick wall when they go to the Distro's site, are met with crazy instructions on how to download, burn, install, update, install nVidia/ATI drivers etc.
Maybe focussing more on poor Joe and less on nerds is a way to go, albeit a lot of work, building up a solid base of guides for each distrbution, to guide the user from "Why not try Linux" all the way to "there, how do you like it?".
Installation scripts might also be an idea, I'm working on a personal one for Fedora that will automate my first-boot config, to install the nVidia driver, create mount points for network shares etc, install software I use through yum.
*Edit* also maybe link to that site that I've forgotten who/where it is who sell distro discs.
Just my 1-cent (I'm poor), where's that Paypal donate button in my sig gone!
