The best Linux distro for PC?
July 6, 2009 1:12am CST
I've tried yet Fedora, Ubuntu, Linux Mint (Ubuntu based) and OpenSuse. I liked them all, but prefer Fedora. But OpenSuse and Mint have more preinstalled multimedia plugins. So it's a bit of confusing between fedora and OpenSuse. What about you people? Any other good distro?

I think linux distro are really different so in many cases it depends from which purposes you would like having on your opensource os!! I tries opensuse and redhat but i think these are really suitable for business and personal use mmh may be there better as ubuntu or even mandriva!! Surely in many cases the diferences are also considered about installed plugins so normally for a personal use you need a bit more of them than in the business one for that i think ubuntu now from this point of view is the most user freindly amoung linux distro or even mandriva can be samrt as well!!I think on the contrary that if some private user try some distribution as opensuse it cna be good but not completely satisfied because the opensource from novell is really thought for a business owner and so also redhat can have the same problems as well!!

I have tried using Ubuntu and Kubuntu. I am pretty satisfied with Ubuntu because it is easy for use, and very flexible. In addition, Linux is OpenSource and there are so much free (and opensource) programs that I can use without paying single penny. I personally believe that there is not Linux distro better than other. It depends what we are using it for. Ubuntu is great for domestic use, writing documents, listening to music, watching videos etc... There is also Ubuntu Server Edition which is great for setting up servers like Apache, MySql... The difference between Ubuntu and Kubuntu is the GUI, whether is Gnome or KDE. KDE is much closer to the visual appearance of Windows. However, since I used only two distros, I would prefer Ubuntu.
