Should there have been a pdf on the DVD with the detailed structure of the tests done on the 50 distros?

The article text was selective in mentioning some aspects of each and it was reasonable to expect to have seen a pdf with an expanded listing with perhaps a rating out of 10 and some textual comment for all the categories similar to whatever notes your testers made.

Interesting use of the word reasonable.

I would imagine it takes long enough to write up an article like that, without arranging all the relevant notes in publishable form. You can see, towards the end, that the standard of writing slips (more that usual); a sure sign of a tired writer.
