Choosing the Right Linux

There is no right or wrong Linux. When choosing the right Linux, all are equally good. What differentiates one from the other is how you plan to use it and the context in which it is being used.

Say, if you want to tinker with some cool Linux derivative for fun, then by all means, install any and enjoy to your fullest. But if your motives are a bit more serious and you want to use one as your standard desktop, or have an ambitious plan to support multitude of computers running a single version of Linux then you might want to do some thinking before selecting the right Linux distribution.

Ubuntu vs Fedora

Two of the biggest names in desktop Linux are Ubuntu and Fedora. Both have a huge and sometimes emotionally charged following and will defend one against the other vehemently.

Ubuntu and Fedora currently support almost the same set of software without much difference. Be it desktop applications like LibreOffice, Skype, VLC or Server software like Apache, MySQL, PHP etc. The only difference could be how to install or provide support. In short, there is no difference for an average user.
