I’m a big Linux enthusiast. Like everything I’m interested in, I’m not quite a fanatic. Desktop Linux has come a long way since the first time I messed with it. Back then, you couldn’t do anything worthwhile without knowing tons of command line commands. The desktop didn’t include much of anything. Today, it’s how Windows should be.
I used Windows for years, mainly because I didn’t see anything else coming close to doing what it could do. Then along came Ubuntu, which took Debian and made something just about anyone can use.
I won’t get into the history of any of this. It confuses me. All I can say is that most of the distributions are built on top of the base distributions like Debian, Slackware, and others. Google’s Android is a Linux distribution.
Over the past several years, I’ve used Ubuntu, LXLE and various editions of Linux Mint. I’ve tested more distributions than I care to remember.
