The Perfect Linux Distro

Filed under
Linux

I talk a lot about what I think is wrong with the current state of Desktop Linux. And I spend a fair bit of time talking about what I think can be done to improve it, and which applications I like the most.

So I figured, why not collect my notes together…

And lay out, piece-by-piece, what I think would be the ultimate Linux Desktop Distribution. And, when I say ultimate. I mean ultimate. The best eye candy. The best media related apps. The best usability. The kind of Linux distro that, out of the box, knocks peoples socks off and makes Windows and MacOS X die-hards lay down their swords and declare this new Linux distro “totally teh rad“.

The Base

Debian or Ubuntu. This is the most widely used base on the desktop. Debian stock, Ubuntu and Linux Mint make up for a huge percentage of Linux Desktop usage. So this simply makes sense.

Ya know what? Let’s go with Ubuntu.

rest here

Instead of waiting and hoping and waiting and writing stupid blog posts and waiting and waiting and waiting for the Linux Desktop that will never be - just buy a Mac.

And do what?

And do what? Install Linux on it?

I love Mac's but I'll never let Linux go. I plan on buying an iMac in the near future (Christmas?) but I'll have Linux loaded on it, as well. God love Jobs and Co. for creating Boot Camp!

You are kidding

Or spend a quarter of the money, have a more powerful computer, and fill it up with all the software you want without spending another cent. Try doing that with a Mac.
