Linux vs. Linux: Which Distro Should You Dump Windows For?

“You’re ready to be a card-carrying Linux geek, but with several different Linux distributions available, you don’t know where to start. Which one offers the best balance of tools, performance, and price? Bryan Hoff takes you through the most popular Linux distros and introduces you to a brave new world without Windows.”

Overall a well written and thoughtful article. Selecting a linux distro isn’t as simple as it sounds, but can be a fun process. Personally I recommend having a spare computer to test on. That being said… the best method is also to imerse yourself in the distro and use it from day to day. Distro of the Month you can get a new distro once a month. A month is a decent amount of time to allow a person to test a distro out to see if they like it.

What do you folks think?

    Nice blog – very interesting. I have a Online Quote Term Life blog. Actually, I have a few, and this one covers Online Quote Term Life related stuff. I’d like your opinion of it if you have the time:-)

    Distro of the month is a smart way to test out a few of the lesser known and some of the better known distros and see what they all have to offer. Especially if you have dial up.

    But what does that have to do with Online Quote Term life blogs????

    I don’t know either.
