For Lunux users what distro do you use ?

For me its Mint . I have used other distros , but perty much stay with Mint . I think we have a few Linux users on this forum , I know there some on bad caps and oh hip . Most of the distros are free to use and re code if you have the skills . If you dont know any thing about Linux but want to know let me know and I or another forum member might be able to answer your question . Linux is an operating system , like windows or mac. Most but not all distros are free to download and use .

Some distros are easier to use than others . Ubuntu and Mint are not that hard to learn to use . Along with a number of others . Ones like Kali are for hackers and have programs that run on them that you need to
know C++ or python . Most distros can be mounted to a usb drive . They can be run from the usb drive and only installed if you want . You can run it from the usb drive to see if you like it and it works with your hard ware. There are YT videos on using some of the distros . Many of the distros have user forums ( Mint and Ubuntu do ) other users will discuss hard ware /soft ware problems . Many of the ones on the wiki list are no longer available . Most on distro watch are free for the down load . I know red hat and a few others have a fee to use .

PS , Pre loaded usb drives with a bunch of distros are available for a fee . I dl them my self and have never tired the ones for sale so I know nothing about them .
This is wikis list of live boot distros . Ones that will run from the usb/dvd drive

I dont remember what 98 se was like so I dont know . I would say either dl some distros and load them on a usb drive or buy a pre loaded one and try some as a live boot . Most Linux distros will run as a live boot . The system runs from the dvd/usb drive . Its not instaled on the hard drive unless you tell it to install . When you install a distro to a hard drive ever thing is erassed on the drive . Make sure you have saved ever thing off the drive before installing a system . Most distros will run on older slower hard ware . So its perfect for that older system you dont use . I am using Mint as I type this comment . For first time users I would try Mint or Ubuntu . There east to set up and use , but 2 of many good systems . 3 of many , many YT videos on Linux .

Ps Linux has some games , but most kinda suck . A few are ok . Its all free programers dont want to spend a lot of time creating some thing they wont make any money on . If you are a Linux user and have a game you like let this forum know .

I put Debian 10 on my shop computer, an old HP desktop that came with (and couldn't run) Windows. Been an amazingly reliable unit for years.

Wife loves Mint.

I used to play with a lot of distros, but settled on "If it's Debian based...."

Been using Mint for nearly 3 years now. It was like a dream come true when I discovered it.

I wouldn't go back to Windows if someone paid me.
