Re: 10 top Linux distros and the 90 others ?

And we need to reach the other three major Linux distros? Mepis, Knoppix and Damn Small Linux, even though they are forks of Debian or (K)ubuntu. Brands were established, that people did not want to crossover the line.

I really wanted to put a mepis and knoppix in there, but I didn't want to deviate too far away from last years polls or the results wouldn't mean as much for my purposes of comparison.

If DSL, Knoppix, could be included under debian, that'd be great, and I guess ... where is mepis now? under debian or ubuntu.

I had to put ubuntu by itself due to its massive popularity.

But as you say, I'd need 90 choices to get almost everybody's favorite. Big Grin

Favorite distro : Archlinux

Favorite distro : Archlinux ( not in list )
Favorite DE : KDE

trick question?

Kind of a trick question. For big servers, it's RHEL, for small servers it's Fedora, for Desktops it Ubuntu or PCLinuxOS. I don't think there is one Distro that fits every need. That's both the boon and bane of Linux (so many choices).

Fav Distro (2006)

It's been over a year since our last Favorite Linux Distribution poll, and I thought it would be interesting to find out how thing compare. If you'll notice, Ubuntu wasn't even listed on last years. Since Xandros had very little interest last year, I've replace it with Ubuntu.

Please use these categories broadly.

Please post your 'other.'

  • ​Learn to use GitHub with GitHub Learning Lab
    The most popular open-source development site in the world is GitHub. It's used by tens of millions of developers to work on over 80 million projects. It's not just a site where people use Linus Torvalds' Git open-source distributed version control system. It's also an online home for collaboration, a sandbox for testing, a launchpad for deployment, and a platform for learning new skills. The GitHub Training Team has now released an app, GitHub Learning Lab, so you can join the programming party. GitHub Learning Lab is not a tutorial or webcast. It's an app that gives you a hands-on learning experience within GitHub. According to GitHub, "Our friendly bot will take you through a series of practical, fun labs that will give you the skills you need in no time--and share helpful feedback along the way."

  • V3D DRM Driver Steps Towards Mainline Kernel, Renamed From VC5
    The Broadcom VC5 driver stack is being renamed to V3D and developer Eric Anholt is looking at merging it into the mainline Linux kernel. The VC5 DRM/KMS and Mesa code has been for supporting the next-generation Broadcom VideoCore 5 graphics hardware that's only now beginning to appear in some devices, well, it seems one device so far. Though as I pointed out a few months back, there's already "VC6" activity going on too as the apparent successor to VC5 already being in development.
