This is the way. My man’s got the right idea of practicality
- Tails (not that I use this “on a new device.”)
Arch / EndeavourOS
While I’ve used Zorin, Linux Mint, Dr460nized Garuda, XeroLinux, Archcraft, and ArcoLinux, it’s really only…
- EndeavourOS (Budgie and Cinnamon).
The Iron Core:
- Arch: on my workstation
- EOS: on the laptop
- Raspbian: on the raspberry
- plus some hopping for fun
- pro preferences debian for server and ubuntu mantic for my workstation and endeavour os for fun
- perso preferences MX, edubuntu and endeavour os
EndeavourOS for everything now, including perfect gaming and all things media. The forum is simply the best of any distro I have used; friendly, helpful and no elitist twonks.
When I was still hopping around…
Garuda Dr460nized Gaming
… and countless others when I was in hyperhop mode.
Distros are so similar nowadays I focus more on the DE. Why distrohop when you can install basically any DE through EndeavourOS? My top 5 are:
- EndeavourOS KDE
- EndeavourOS XFCE
- EndeavourOS Gnome
- Debian Stable
- OpenSUSE Tumbleweed
- KDE Neon
- Q4OS Trinity
Since 1 and 2 are no longer around Endeavour it is )
Well my secondary laptop have some issue with kernel panic and freez because Huawei doesn’t made good bios so I was a distro hoping for a while tryin’ find a more stable distro for this notebook, that my top 5:
1 EOS KDE (on my primary laptop Dell Latitude 3420)
2 Garuda KDE Lite version (on my secondary laptop Huawei Matebook 14 AMD)
3 Debian Testing KDE
4 Opensuse Tumbleweed KDE
5 Mint LMDE when I don’t want living on the edge
Special mention for MX Linux but in the past and OpenMandriva that is a realy nice distro, Fedora is good too but IMHO is a gnome distro more than a kde distro and I love KDE so …not my favourite distro
I installed once and liked ARCO, but their website(s) are such a HUGE mess, I never found what I was looking for… Never tried it again
I really loved Mepis! Samba shares used to work perfectly OOB!
- Debian (stable)
It isn’t the easiest to browse, I’ll admit. But (to me) it is an excellent distro and I have learned a lot in reading its nebulous trails. This is such a tough post to categorize. All of these choices have strong points (for me).
He really is. Like so many in the Linux community, he is a very hard worker and a terrific instructor who want to help. I am grateful to him (and several in the Endeavour forum)!
