Top 3 Linux Distros - No Easy Choice

Filed under
Linux

"Which came first, the chicken or the egg?" The question seemingly has no real answer, and biologists can argue either reply ad nauseam. The computer world has an equally pervasive question that cannot provide a single answer:

"What are the top three Linux distributions?"

Ask any collection of Linux experts that question and you'll be in for a long discussion. It all depends on what the intended use is. For instance, are we talking about the top three distributions for business or home use? For commercial use or subscription free support? For bundled integration with hardware or developmental purposes? For server optimization or cost economy? For paid technical support or free distribution?

You now see the problem. The top three distributions exist only within the context of a given Linux use. People use Linux for a wide variety of purposes from commercial and industrial, to server and desktop. Linux uses vary greatly within corporate walls and small-business environments.
