Which is the Best Linux Distribution for your Desktop?
,----[ Quote ]
| Some Linux distributions are light-weight
| (theyâll run just fine on your old laptop),
| some are targeted at people who just want
| to try out Linux without replacing their
| main OS while other desktop distros (say
| Ubuntu) include a more comprehensive
| collection of software applications and
| also support a wide variety of hardware
| Arch Linux is a recommended distro for
| power (experienced) users as it allows them
| to create a customized Linux installation
| built from the ground up. It does not have
| a graphical install interface.
| Slackware is another distro that deserves
| mention in this context. As compared to
| Arch Linux, Slackware Linux provides more
| stable packages and is thus more
| conservative. However, Arch Linux provides
| a more usable package management system
| that takes care of dependencies.
Top 5 top 5s for Linux

| Ubuntu: Although it is not my desktop
| distribution of choice, it is my âgo-toâ
| distribution in just about any situation. And
| the only reason it is not my desktop
| distribution is because of the next entry.
| Elive: Elive combines my two favorite desktop
| tools â Enlightenment and Compiz. Without
| Elive, these two would not work together.
| Debian: It is that which Ubuntu is based. Need
| I say more?
| OpenSuSE: The YaST tool alone puts this distro
| in just about any top ten.
| Fedora: I was a long standing Red Hat user so
| Fedora is a natural for a top ten distribution.
| And even though Fedora is âbleeding edgeâ, itâs
| still rock solid.
