Smile Do you remember your 100 pools?


That is exactly the case. The distribution of the year should follow some specific criteria, like "for begginers", "old hardware", etc. My choice was focused for the general "day-by-day" activities: Linux Mint. Mint has the best match between "easy to use" with "estability" and "quality of resources". This does not mean that in the "Distrowatch Paradise" there is no other beatiful landscapes...

Yep. Fedora first and Debian second. I would love to put them both first if I could.

Debian IMHO because it's stable doesn't bitrot like Cent OS / RHEL seems to or seem to break as often as Ubuntu.

I don't see "siduction" listed. Debian Sid with a lot of extras. My favorite rolling release.
