If Linux Distributions Were Women

Filed under

What would each Linux Distribution be like if it were a woman?

If Red Hat were a woman...

Red Hat is the first of three sisters--Fedora and CentOS--and the bossiest. She pretends to have money, and her family has definitely been involved in plenty of businesses, but everyone knows she's doesn't.

Red Hat has been plagued by psychological problems since she was a child, and she has a reputation for it. She had problems resolving her dependency issues, but she's been medicated regularly for over the years and leads a more-or-less normal life.

If OpenSUSE Were a Woman

openSUSE is SUSE's younger, American-born sibling. Like her sister, she could stand to lose a few pounds, but she's fairly healthy and the guys like her.

If Ubuntu Were a Woman

Ubuntu is a wildly popular and exceedingly attractive daughter of an African-American diplomat with a fanclub that spans the world over. She is one of several similarly attractive sisters, and generally takes the leading role out of the lot of them (her mother still isn't sure she's done having kids yet). is a republish of the original work from Here.

Uh oh

So many jokes come to mind which revolve around the fsck utility.

Suse: Question. What do you call second-place in ARM enterprise server linux? Answer: Red Hat

ARM TechCon Suse is claiming victory over Red Hat by announcing – and these caveats are all crucial – "the first commercial enterprise Linux distribution optimized for ARM AArch64 architecture servers." In plainer English, Suse has developed an enterprise-grade Linux distribution that runs on 64-bit ARM servers (should you happen to ever find one). Suse claims this software is a world first because it is a finished commercial product, thus beating Red Hat to the punch: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server for ARM is still only available as a beta-like development preview.
