Choosing which way to walk with Linux

Filed under
Linux

I use Linux in a variety of ways, business, home, hobby. Because of the ways I use Linux, I am glad there are choices in distros. A plethora of options to look through, see what works best for what situation.

I also work with a handful of others who are techs and admins and just helpful folks in general. We have found a somewhat common ground in which distros we use most often and in what environments.

Lately, we have taken to using the following distros for the different purposes in which we use Linux.

Commercial Business Desktop:

I have to say Suse/OpenSuse is the choice I have used and people I work with have chosen when looking for a commercially supported business use desktop. The implementations have altered between the Gnome and KDE usage but overall, Suse has a pretty solid presentation and choice of management tools and options to work with.

Fedora: The Latest

  • New "remi-php71" repository
  • PHP on the road to the 7.1.0 release
  • First round of Fedora 24 Updated Lives now available. (torrents expected later this week)
    As noted by my colleague on his blog the first round of F24 Updated Lives are now available and carry the date 20160720, Also as mentioned last week on his blog F23 Respins are not going to be actively made, however we and the rest of the volunteer team will field off-off requests as time and resources permit. We are considering a new/second tracker for the Updated Spins but as of today there are only .ISO files available at https://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/live-respins [shortlink] F24 Live-Respins . The F24 respins carry the 4.6.4-200 Kernel and roughly ~500M of updates since the Gold ISOs were released just 5 weeks ago. (some ISOs have more updates, some less)
