Which of the following distro’s would be suitable for ...
Ok I have a question in which I would like as many people as possible to answer for me.
You basically answer by choosing a Distro above ^^^^
But I would also like input through a post.
People that have selected other please state the other distro as I do not know too many.
A bit of information for you first:
basically I want a distro that is
Basically the core of distros
Universal and compliant with the mainstream stuff
Will help me understand and learn about Linux:
The following can be summed up by: (Quoted from Infra)
"Yes I know what you mean, you want something that's universal and compliant with the mainstream stuff."
Following what I wish to do with Linux/where I wish to be and more general information:
I want to be able to use Linux as a home computer/workstation for my self – not into games that much – but when I am I have windows as well for that
I want to learn Linux, not just have it as a core OS but learn the ins and outs of it.
I want to be able to use/learn from one main distro, but what I learn from this distro be able to go into another distro and know exactly what I am doing or near dam to it – so I wan tot learn using a distro that relates a lot to most or all of the other available distros.
I hate the idea of taking the easy way out, take the other day for example, tehmiller said access the cdrom through the GUI because its basically easier – why take the easy way out - you learn more and feel you have accomplished more if you take the more harder yet more involved route.
I want to learn how to use such an OS in network conditions from a web servers, routers to the full just file server/backup server
If you have any more questions please ask, don’t just guess what I am trying to say because it won’t help someone whom really wants to learn. – Thank you.
So the Question is:
Which of the following distro’s would be suitable for what I am saying and most importantly why.
I am not hoping for you to answer my question hopefully but more for you to all narrow it down to a few, then I can research more about those distros and find out what is best for my situation if you like.
Thank you for your time. I am looking at having all information needed by Tomorrow Afternoon – About 20 hours form now so that I am able to download the desired Distro.
I do appreciate your time in reading this thread and if you have contributed to helping me – that as well.
