That's my answer, figure I'd pitch in after the fact rather than upfront as to not skew the responses
I gonna go with
@brandon regolith, ubuntu budgie, Parrot
Mint, Manjaro, and Slackware, in that order
system rescue cd
@eal won't count this one, but I'm sure that was your goal :p
I also like the FreeBSD, OpenBSD, and NetBSD.
Debian from '99 - previously red hat.
I tried almost all the derivatives, but there's only the original for me.
@cosmo I need three plz
Not in particular order !
@brandon Ubuntu, Pop OS, Solus
Kubuntu, Manjaro and Yunohost
@albi @Blort Considering that not only does it serve a fundamentally different purpose, it's provided by a different developing organization, that it provides a different experience entirely, and has a modified package base and kernel, no, they would not be considered the same
They are different enough
The question was what our three favourite distros are. I answered what I consider they are for me. What exactly makes up a distro and what doesn't, I would say, is not only highly subjective, but pretty gradiated. My overall point is that I gave a subjective answer to a pretty subjective question. A distro can be defined many ways and it's pretty much a waste of time trying to convince other people that their answers to a subjective question are wrong.
Lol. I should have known better than to actually reply to a question about favorite distros. 🤦♀️ That one's on me!
@Blort Hey, that's perfectly ok. I see your point, I just wanted to become a bit smarter by your answer. 😄
No problem. I may just not be the right person to talk to, to become smarter! 😋
It pretty much is as you described. That doesn't stop it being the best self hosting distro in my book though, in a way that straight Debian isn't. If we're going to call Yunohost just Debian with extra server software though, then really Kubuntu should also be called "just Ubuntu" with a set of desktop environment and apps added. Then again, maybe Ubuntu is "just Debian" with stuff added, too...
Ubuntu isn't "just Debian" as they not only have a different developing organization, changes made to Ubuntu's package set are not at all dependent on Debian's release schedule.
@brandon Linux Mint, Pop!_os, Solus
In no particular order:
Manjaro (and all Arch by extension)
Fedora (especially Silverblue)
@brandon Mine are:
@brandon Anything that doesn't support stupid bloatware systemd:
@Citizenzibb not sure I follow
My favorites (might be a little biased lol)
Honorable mentions to Solus and Manjaro tho.
