There are hundreds of Linux desktop distributions. What’s a would-be Linux desktop user to do? Luckily for you, you don’t have to try them all out to find a good fit.
The key question is: “What do you want to use Linux for?” Once you know that, everything else is easy.
For those of you who haven’t met me before. I’ve been using Linux as a desktop operating system since 1993, two years after Linux was created. Since then I’ve used dozens of different Linux distribution and I used to run a website called Desktop Linux. Today, I use three different Linux desktops on a regular basis. In short, I know the Linux desktop.
