Choosing right Linux distribution
Which distribution should I use ?
This is often a big question to all new Linux users. When you are introduced to the world of Linux and you experiment a little bit with Linux environment. You might be tempted to many other Linux distributions.
Even I was tempted and tried lots of distributions, but then settled on Ubuntu, the reasons for that are as follows
- I use software which is dependent on other libraries. These libraries are well supported on Ubuntu distributions
- I wanted Linux distribution which is well supported on a cloud like OpenStack which is well integrated on Ubuntu flavors
- Servers and many documentations are available on either on Redhat or Ubuntu based flavors
So I am finally settled on the Ubuntu distribution.
These are two websites which you can use and see which Linux distributions suites you
Top 10 Linux flavors as per many websites are as flollows, numbers
- Linux Mint : https://linuxmint.com/
- Ubuntu : https://www.ubuntu.com/
- Debian : https://www.debian.org/
- Fedora : https://getfedora.org/
- Elementary OS : https://elementary.io/

- Arch Linux : https://www.archlinux.org/
- Zorin : https://zorinos.com/
- OpenSuse : https://www.opensuse.org/

All above distributions differ based on following points
- Release Frequency, six months or year, stable realease only, rolling realease
- Focus on user interface example Elementry OS
- Privacy First
- Customization if first priority
- Beginners first distribution
So, do your research, based on the needs you can choose Linux distributions
