Browse: Home Submit Your Top 5 Linux Distributions
Posted by Gary Newell |  at 14:15 11 comments
Last week I wrote a list of the 5 Linux distributions I recommend for the everyday linux user.
As expected I am receiving comments asking why I didn't include this distribution or that distribution.
I am therefore opening the floor to you guys and girls.
Your challenge is to write a list of the 5 Linux distributions you would recommend to the everyday linux user.
My criteria for the everyday user is somebody who isn't particularly technically skilled.
They don't know or care how to program or script and they don't particularly want to spend time messing around in the terminal or scouring the internet searching for solutions to things that should be easy to set up.
The Everyday user wants tools such as office suites, browsers, chat clients, audio programs, video players and image viewers.
The Everyday Linux User wants to be able to find and install software easily.
Each sensible submission (ie no spam posts) will be posted on this site.
At the end of August I will place a poll and you will be able to vote on the best submission.
The top 2 submissions will receive a £10 Amazon gift card (which is between $15 and $20 dollars and changing on a daily basis due to the recent brexit vote in the UK).
The winners will be announced on the 10th September.
So not only do you get to have your say you also get a chance to win a prIze as well.
Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with your list of the best 5 distributions for the everyday linux user.
Please state why you are submitting each item in the list.
Please also supply your name so that you can receive credit for your entry.
Thank you for reading and thank you to everyone that enters.
Remember if you don't enter you can't complain that your chosen distributions weren't considered.
You agree that your submission can be posted on this site.
Slight grammatical changes may be made. (Such as spelling mistakes).
Your data will not be used for any other purposes and will not be retained after the end of the contest.
