My Favorite 5 Live Linux Distros

Filed under
Linux

* Kubuntu- The Ubuntu family are becoming the go to Distro for Linux Novices. With a slick user interface, a wide variety of apps, and a decent installation process, Kubunu would have been my favorite had it actually worked on my machine. Although I had it installed on my Daughter’s laptop, it froze up on mine every time, resenting me with a black screen while the CD happily spun away for eternity everytime.

* SLAX Kill Bill Edition- The first Live CD I had that ran perfectly. Kill Bill has both Wine and Qemu to try to get the Windows programs that you probably already use running. That, and the awesome yellow screen make it worth checking out.( Note:The SLAX homepage is down while SLAX 6 is being added to the site. Download Kill Bill here.)

Long Term Support vs Rolling Linux Release

Over the years, I've had the opportunity to try a lot of different Linux releases. As the time passed, I found myself gravitating more toward the Ubuntu-based Long Term Release model. Obviously there are advantages and disadvantages to using an LTS distro release. That said, when it comes to current software packages, control and speed – rolling releases are a solid option. Good options include Antergos, PCLinuxOS, Linux Mint Debian Edition, among others. In this article, I'll offer a candid view between the two options by examining the core differences between running a rolling release and using an LTS type release distribution. Read more
