The Linux Desktop Experience For 2010

Filed under
Linux

I’ve been looking at the vast range of Linux desktop flavours around and I thought it might be interesting to give my opinion on what I believe to be right up there as the best from my experience of trying them.

Instead of saying what I believe is the best in terms of the distribution though I’m going to provide a list of the best 3 Linux desktops for it’s desktop implementation of Gnome,KDE,XFCE and the experience as a whole.

1. Linux Mint 8 – Main Edition

No surprises here then, I use this for every day use and although I’m considering to move to the Linux Mint XFCE flavour. I still think that Linux Mint is the very best in making the Gnome desktop experience the best experience out there.

It’s also a great experience for beginners and people who simply cannot be bothered to compile or configure everything any more because Linux Mint does this for you and more and like many have stated it certainly does “just work”

The Gnome desktop is a environment that works well for most hardware as well.

    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)
