Five Best Linux Distributions

Filed under
Linux

Whether you're a beginner or you've been using Linux systems for years, you probably have an opinion on what the best distribution is. "Best," is obviously a relative term, and we understand that what's best for beginners may not be best for advanced users, and so on. Still, Linux distributions come in all different shapes, sizes, complexities, styles, and types. We asked you which ones you preferred, and now we're back to take a look at the top five distros based on your nominations.

Earlier in the week we asked you which Linux distros you thought were the best when it came to ease-of-use, support, functionality, compatibility, and that overall had the right mix of features for you. You certainly weighed in, with well over 400 votes! We tallied them up, and now we're back to showcase your five favorites.
