Which Linux Distribution?
One of the most asked questions is which Linux distribution should I use. Every time it is asked, we explain that there is no one correct answer. That is, what is best for one type of computer, one type of user, one set of uses and such is not necessarily the right answer for another.
The obvious questions are:
- Which desktop environment do you want to use?
- What type of computer do you have?
- What is your knowledge of computers in general?
- What is your knowledge of LInux?
There are, however, many additional considerations. No matter how long the answer, there will always be something you missed.
That's the bad news. The good news is that I just tripped on a web page that goes well beyond the four questions I asked above. It poses a set of questions that you answer with mouse clicks and then offers you the best choices. It won't be perfect but it is a lot more fun than reading 50 pages of dry text and will at least get you close.
It is available here. Have fun.
