The Top 10 Distros We Enjoy the Most

Filed under
Linux

A Linux distribution is an OS based on the Linux kernel, and they usually consist of many applications. The main reason that everybody loves Linux is because it’s free, unlike an OS from Microsoft. Also, the Linux distros are more reliable, more secure, more stable, and they don’t require as much memory as Vista. Here is an insight of the best Linux distributions available for computer users which will help you to choose between them. There are plenty of distros out there, but these are the Top 10 that we enjoy the most.

Ubuntu

Ubuntu is probably the most popular Linux distribution of all distributions and it represents a software for the entire world. Ubuntu is three times free - free to download, free to use, and free to distribute. The latest version of this distribution is 8.10 and it was unveiled without too much fuss. Ubuntu 8.10 is an OS with higher scores in performance testing than Windows Vista, it’s more functional than Vista, it’s better when managing wireless connections, and I repeat that it’s free while Vista seems to tax you for each and every BSOD you get.

openSUSE

openSUSE is a project for new and experienced users, and its developers would like it to become the most usable Linux distribution and desktop environment in the world. The latest version is openSUSE 11.1 and it comes packed with several major improvements including a new license which allows redistribution, additional proprietary add-on CD and online repository, better administration features, and openJDK as replacement of Sun Java.

GNOME and KDE

  • Community Time at Collabora [Ed: Mono]
  • Refocus
    Sometimes all those GNOME programming projects are driving me crazy. [...] Note that for that last item, I would use LaTeXila of course, so if there are some regressions due to some library changes (you perfectly know which library in particular I mean), I’ll probably become aware of the regressions and fix them. Without any guarantees, I repeat. So if someone wants to take over LaTeXila maintenance, I would be more than happy. In the condition that I can still recognize my old pet project afterwards and is still mostly bug-free.
  • Chakra GNU/Linux Users Get KDE Plasma 5.5.4 and Calligra 2.9.11 Office Suite
