Top Best Linux Distros

There are times when you just feel you got to change something’s in your lifestyle. Probably you’re tired of using the same old windows OS you and your family have been using for a long time. I know you just need some fresh blood like a new operating system that can suite your needs.

You’ve probably heard of Linux Distros, but you are still asking yourself what is the best Linux Distro can I use?

Linux is popularly known for saving any of your needs that your heart desires. Don’t think that using Linux is a sacrifice you’re making or you probably heard that Linux is for nerds not really. You see Linux powers about 70% of the web most of the internet is made up of Linux and UNIX.

I promise you when use Linux for a month you will learn to appreciate its diverse, security and beauty on top of that. The experience of using Linux is one of kind. As for me my first Linux operating system I ever used was Ubuntu 14.04 to tell you the truth I had a doubt at first, but gradually I feel in love with it and I started to explore other worlds.

The thing that I love with Linux is it doesn’t lock you in one house, but it gives you the freedom to play around other places. Everything in Linux is open and completely free there is no secret that is why it is open source.

With Linux the operating system is completely yours and not borrowed like the way windows is or macOS.

1. Elementary OS

Elementary OS

Elementary OS is the best and beautiful operating system have ever come across, probably the best beautiful Linux distro OS out there.

It is based on Ubuntu and it is the flagship distribution to showcase the Pantheon desktop environment. The pantheon desktop environment is built on top of GNOME software base. Pantheon applications are either forks of current or older GNOME apps or written from scratch.

As of writing the latest version of Elementary OS is called Loki, which is really clean and neat than its predecessor Freya. Elementary OS has also created its own app store that simplifies the process of installing and updating applications.

Elementary OS comes bundled with Epiphany browser, the Geary email client and a few basic tool apps.

You can download Elementary OS from here.

2. Ubuntu

Ubuntu is the most popular operating system running in hosted environments, so called clouds. Ubuntu is an open source operating system which is based on Debian architecture. It is also developed by Canonical Ltd a company founded by Mark Shuttleworth.

Since Ubuntu 17.10, GNOME 3 is the default GUI for Ubuntu Desktop, while Unity is still the default for older versions.

Ubuntu comes loaded with a wide range of software that includes LibreOffice, Firefox, Thunderbird, Transmission and several lightweight games such as Sudoku and chess. Many additional software packages are accessible from the built in Ubuntu Software Center as well as any other APT based package management tools.

Ubuntu’s goal is to be secure “out-of-the-box”. By default, the users program run with low privileges and cannot corrupt the operating system or users files.

3. Linux Mint

Linux Mint Cinnamon

Linux Mint is a community driven Linux distro based on Debian and Ubuntu that strives to be a modern elegant and comfortable operating system which is powerful and easy to use.

Linux Mint provides full out-of-the-box multimedia support by including some proprietary software and comes bundled with a variety of free and open source application.

It’s also a great default distro for new Linux users, as it comes with a lot of the software you need when switching from Mac or Windows, LibreOffice, the favored productivity suite of Linux users, Firefox, Thunderbird, HexChat, VLC and other software’s.

The default Linux Mint desktop is environments, cinnamon and Mate, support many languages. Linux Mint can also run many programs designed for Microsoft windows such as Microsoft Office using The Wine windows compatibility layer software for Linux, or virtualization software including VMware workstation and VirtualBox, or KVM.

4. Arch Linux

Arch Linux is a Linux distro for computer based on x86-64 architectures. A package manager written for arch Linux, pacman is used to install remove and update software packages. Arch Linux uses a rolling release model that is needed to obtain the latest Arch software; the installation images released by the Arch team are simply up to date snapshots of the main system components

Arch is largely based around binary packages. Packages target x86-64microprocessors to assist performance on modern hardware. A ports/ebuild-like system is also provided for automated source compilation, known as the Arch Build System.

Arch Linux focuses on simplicity of design, meaning that the main focus involves creating an environment that is straightforward and relatively easy for the user to understand directly, rather than providing polished point-and-click style management tools the package manager, for example, does not have an official graphical front-end.

This is largely achieved by encouraging the use of succinctly commented, clean configuration files that are arranged for quick access and editing. This has earned its reputation as a distribution for “intermediate and advanced Linux users who aren’t afraid of the command line”.

To get started with Arch Linux you can download Arch Linux from here.


5. Tails OS

Tails OS

What is Tails OS?

Well this Operating system might have a funny name, but it’s a bad ass. Tails is a security focused which is based on Debian and a Linux distro aimed at preserving privacy and anonymity. All of its internet traffic connections are forced to go through Tor, and non-anonymous connections are blocked.

Tails system is designed to be booted as a live DVD or Live USB, and will leave no digital footprint on the machine unless explicitly told to so. The Tor Project has provided financial support for its development.

Tails comes well recommended if you are privacy conscious. I like the way it integrates Tor networks with the OS. That means you don’t need to setup it Tor or download it. This OS at least gives you a peace of mind you don’t have to look right left before you cross the road often if you know what I mean.

The chances of someone knowing you are really reduced at smaller percentage. The good part about this OS you don’t have to be Security expert or nerd to setup it everything comes configured already

To get started with Tails OS you can download Tails from here.
