Three Top Ubuntu Alternatives

Filed under

Ubuntu

Over the past few years, I've come to the conclusion that cutting-edge software availability is the leading indicator of which Linux distribution I'm going to end up with. Perhaps this is why I've found myself flailing into the arms of Ubuntu and Ubuntu-based distributions recently? More often than not, I can find the software I want with a deb package or PPA ready to go.

It's time savers like the one mentioned above that has made non-Ubuntu centric distributions not worth spending much time with. It's not a lack of ability on my end, rather it's a lack of wanting to spend a weekend setting up a new installation just to meet my needs. My time is valuable, so any distribution I select to meet my needs will be reflective of this.

In this article, I will be looking at distributions based on Ubuntu and/or Debian (only), then exploring what makes each spin-off unique.

Between Linux Mint 18 and Fedora 24, we reckon it’s exciting times in the Linux world. With the exception and onset of the boring world of vanilla Ubuntu releases, Linux feels reinvigorated and fresh once again. Jump on board, because it can only get better from here. Read more
