hey! wich linux is the best to use?
hey pll,
i was wondering witch linux is the best to download at the minute i have got suSE linux but i was wondering if there was a better one.

This has been covered back and forth a million times here already.

Bottom line: There is no "best" distribution. Try out a few different ones and use the one that you feel comfortable with and that suits your needs. We won't tell you what clothes to wear so we won't tell you what distribution to use either. :)

"if there was a better one"?? please check the reviews part of this site for a bunch load of opinions as well as other sites like distrowatch.

actually now i think of it, Mandrake is actually 14.34% better than suse ;-)

Anything 2.4.20 or later in my opinion

SuSe is a good place to start.

Go with it!

There's is no 'witch' linux. But there might be a voo doo linux out there.

I started with Mandrake 9.0 a while back but have only recently become a major Linux user with 9.2. Mandrake's the best for people who like trying new versions of things all the time like me.

One comment: Read previous threads before posting. The very same question that came up not many days ago (

As it is very evident from the posts, there is no *ONE* version and *ONE* distro...that is the best. Every distro has its good/bad parts (of-course that is also relative). When it comes to the version, i would suggest any version that is very current and stable.

For people new to linux, it is always advisable to stay away from the very very latest versions ( like fedora), instead try something that has been arnd for some time, get used to it and then if u feel comfy, move on...
