Best Linux distros for power users

Filed under
Linux

Although there isn't any known definition of a Linux power user, they are a celebrated breed of Linux users. All newbies must toil long and hard with their Linux installations before they can describe themselves as one.

At the very least, power users have a great degree of skill on all things Linux, whether it's the kernel, Bash or package management systems - and they aren't afraid to get their hands dirty in the name of configuring the system.

Almost all modern Linux distributions require little from users before presenting them with a working distro. By definition, no power user will want to run any of these distros. This is why, despite their popularity, Ubuntu, and Mint are not featured here.

In addition to a driven installation, which separates these distros from most others, what's even better is the adaptability quotient of the distros in our roundup. You can easily coax any of these distros to churn out music at parties, or host complex websites.

The development methodology and underlying package management system are still relevant concerns, but if you're driven by the desire to squeeze every ounce of power out of your Linux distro, you could be a power user.
