Debian Stable rocks. Although, I use MX Linux which is based on Debian Stable with Xfce as DE and systemd as init. It's stable and works pretty good. MX Tools has some good utilities too.these days i am slowly drifting towards debian. its soo stable. been using buster for dev lxd container in my ubuntu for a while now.
Well, you can jump directly to Arch, but it would be great to get some idea of package manager and related commands by installing another distro based on it. Maybe Manjaro?Favourite till now for me has been Pop and Mint.
However I want to try Arch. So Would it be better to straight up use Arch itself, or should I first try Arch based distros like Garuda and Endeavour?
man Fedoa 34 looks dope, thinking to test drive it in VM sooner. New user planing to migrate to linux after win11 must look into this along with Zorain.My main os is Fedora.
No, don't have any favorite OS, just use what serves your needs the best. The OS should be mostly transparent and get out of the way for whatever applications that you use primarily.
- For the vast majority of use cases (especially games), Windows serves you well. Most of the big FOSS packages are available on Windows.
- *BSDs are much better organized than Linux but have limited hardware/software support. If you're gonna make some kind of file server, do consider a ZFS based setup (with enough ram)
- Linux has a very rich command line toolset, you can combine them in a lot of ways to manage things .I like Vim a lot, and it gets even better when you have useful commands (like awk) available in the os. I used Gentoo Linux the most, had a 5 year stint using only that before the lack of time and a stable electricity threw a spanner in the works.
