  • Slackware, simple, minimal but you're in charge
  • Debian, most stable and powerful, used as base of over 500 distributions
  • Arch, advanced and powerful, for people who want to be educated or experts
  • Fedora, has the latest updates, and is sponsored by major Linux company Red Hat
  • Ubuntu, easy and highly popular distribution, ultimately based on Debian
  • Linux Mint, most popular distribution, easiest for new users (based on Ubuntu)
  • LMDE 2, Linux Mint Debian Edition 2, like Linux Mint only based on Debian instead of Ubuntu
