Favorite Linux Distros?

Post by delawareian » Mon Jan 30, 2017 11:32 pm

Just wondering if anybody out there has a favorite, or at least preferred, Linux distro (and desktop)? I distrohop a lot, I'm never satisfied. ;)

I used to be a big Fedora guy, but I find dnf to be a bit too slow. Right now, my three modern computers (Core 2 Duo and Core i3 laptop, AMD A4 desktop) run Ubuntu with Unity, my Windows XP machine (Pentium Dual Core laptop) is dual booted with Ubuntu MATE, my Pentium III laptop runs Debian with MATE, and my Raspberry Pi runs Raspbian with no desktop.

EDIT: Formatting mistake.

I really like Kubuntu. The KDE desktop is the main reason I love this bistro.

Has to be Ubuntu. Used it for years on my laptop and have been loving it.

Honestly, Debian. A bit boring but it works and is supported for 2 years each release.

LXLE is a favorite of mine, though lately I haven't been able to get it to run on my computer. So right now I use Mint, which is nice too. I love the Cinnamon desktop.

I like Deepin Linux, it has the feel of MacOS but it is much faster that Windows and I have it partitioned on a second drive on my main computer.

I love Debian, personally. I used it for a long time since it was the only one that could access software at my university correctly, but now none of them do (I used to run Stata off one of their servers, but only Kubuntu seems to work with that now, and as nice as KDE 5 is, it's just not for me).

I think Mint is a great distro, I'm a huge fan of the Cinnamon desktop, but unfortunately, it seems to have problems on my laptop. Sometimes, it just displays a black screen on login. It's apparently a common issue, but I haven't found a good solution, so I'm sticking to Ubuntu for now.

To the honest, the only linux distro that I have ever tried in my entire life was only Ubuntu, and that's it... :oops:
