Favourite Linux Distro
Posted 16 February 2010 - 03:23 AM
So, if you have any kind of Linux experience, or if you've tried various distros before, do let us know.
Desktops wise, I'm a big Ubuntu fan - the app repositories (Aptitude) are usually up to date, and it's feature packed. I'm yet to find a major thing to complain about with regards to this OS.
On servers, it simply has to be CentOS - RHEL based, reliable, secure. Only complaint is that the repos are often out of date - but I usually get round this by installing EPEL and sometimes installing the REMI repository.

In that order. THough my command line talents need polishing.

Adding to the cool factor here is that Canonical is working on a Windows-based client, so you'll even be able to synchronize your files and music (including that purchased from the Ubuntu One Music Store via the included Rhythmbox Music Player) on a Microsoft-based PC. That's a major step for Ubuntu, and probably one that will help encourage adoption—at least among second and third PCs
That Windows-based client sounds good !
...and for the first time I'm playing games on Linux really smoothly. Alien-Arena is quite nice and very similar to Quake III and DooM 4.
