    Mr. Canepa, where is the screenshot of your no. 1 pick, Linux Mint??

  3. BackD00r says:

    No screenshot for Linux Mint?

    “Among Mint’s most distinguishing features we can mentioned that during installation, you are allowed to choose from a list of desktop environments,”

    Huh? I’ve never seen that.

  5. Emiliano says:

    As I always said: “Linux Mint is what Ubuntu should have always been”
    Simple, stable, simple, powerful, simple, nice, simple, with Debian as bodyguard…
    I said simple?

  6. Aaron Kili K says:

    Debian and its derivatives will always come top. Could this be because of the ease and convenience they provide to users?

  7. Wayne says:

    I’d like to know the ranking of the use of desktops.

    • @Wayne,
      That would be very difficult to find out globally as it is almost impossible to track whether a person downloading an ISO image will use a desktop version or a minimal (command-line only) version. Of course you could make a poll, but that would only be representative of the people using that specific poll.

  8. It is a good article. But I would like to disagree with one point.
    You’re saying
    “On top of all that, the installation image includes the Try Ubuntu feature, which lets you try Ubuntu before actually installing it on your hard drive. Not many major distributions provide such feature nowadays.”

    Can you name some major distributions which does not provide this feature? In your list of 10 distributions, 8 of them provide this features. (I’m not sure about Debian and CentOS)

  9. @kevin,
    I have to disagree with your comment. What do you exactly mean by “primitive”?

  10. kevin says:

    Debian is still more primitive then Ubuntu was 10 years ago.
