Hello Folks, I was wondering that there are almost 1000 Linux distributions around us and Dammm! I just know a few of them. That was really demotivating for the first 10 seconds then I thought wait wait wait are they even used? or just developed for fun. After a deep research, I found that most of them are just started as a side project or a solution to a personal problem but some of them really makes difference and have a stand in this fast-moving world. So let's not talk and let me give a brief to you :
This is a Debian based Linux which proved to give best known simplistic user experience + support, and Yessss! I also felt the same.
Points to note are:
- It is providing a solid desktop (and server) experience, and it isn’t afraid to build its own custom technology to do it.
- Rich of Repositories and not so fancy yet powerful at the same time
Mint is built on top of Ubuntu and known for having the best media support at that time but I think now we have software like VLC to do the job. Sooooo, goodbye mint👋 We need to break up 🙈
Fedora is started as a university project (as I mentioned🤭) with the aim to serve bleeding-edge software and support at the enterprise level and RedHat named community also supported the cause. But after a period of time in 2003 RedHat got divided into two entities Redhat Enterprise Linux(RHEL) and Fedora. They are still the same OS but RHEL adds extra support to companies to make some money and keep the purpose alive. But in August 2008 several Fedora servers were compromised ad that's where the boosted rise of RHEL happened. CentOS is just a copy of RHEL but it's just RHEL with less/no support.
In short, they are Linux for the enterprise.
Basically, openSUSE aimed to provide the best UI + powerful enterprise-level features and it is once known for its best Linux UI but eventually, Ubuntu took the crown. SUSE Linux Enterprise is the enterprise version of openSUSE.
Linux known for its deep roots. That means it's once the barest and grounded Linux where you have to manually configure everything but at the same time, you have the power to do everything. And at present, if you want a User experience near to MacOS then go for it.
As we already heard, Kali Linux is known for its supercool 600 preinstalled hacking tools and a super awesome UI. It is actually a Kernal Auditing LInux but often misunderstood by Hindu goddess name "kali" mata. It actually became famous when actors used it multiple times in "Mr.Robot" t.v. series.
As I mentioned there are thousands of Linux-based OS but I think every OS is there for solving a particular problem so before installing any OS just find your use case. And if you think I left something then comment it down below and Don't forget to show some love in the comments down below.
Good Luck, Happy Coding!
