Linux Distributions For Everyone: Top 50

FSF-Logo

The systems o Linux distributions have been criticized by some for their non-standardization, for blurring the work of the entire development community into hundreds of different distributions. This is true that it creates problems, such as the need to create different packages for the different package managers (.rpm, .deb, ...), as well as an extra effort from application and driver developers to get them to work well in any distro. Even for those of us who study Linux it is tedious, because you have to learn certain peculiarities of some distributions and to handle all these types of packages.

Leaving this aside, it must be said that there are so many distributions as you like. Therefore, we can benefit from this diversity and install the most suitable for our work or purpose. In this article we list the 50 most used Linux distributions. The Top 50 of is as follows and in this order:

    That list is bullshit. There are distributions that are very low and are very used, and vice versa as well.

    Linux mint should come second, or else I don't like Ubuntu so much anymore. in the forums we are many users of Linux mint.

    It is very offensive that you put the FSF logo and below you put distros like Chrome OS, if Richard Stallman saw that, he would throw your site

    Where is Manjaro? That distro has been in the top ten of distrowatch for more than half a year. What the hell is that Chrome OS?

    1.    AlbertoAru said

      and Elementary and yes, I have also stayed the same when seeing Chrome there.

  5.   Irving cocom said

    I do not understand why Arch appears in 8th if he is one of the best. Greetings.

  6.   AlbertoAru said

    Isaac, you looked good, man. I think you should redo it.

  7.   Menkar Singer said

    Bad pos, I support what the FSF logo does besides that it is GNU / Linux, Mint, Fedora and now Manjaro and elementaryOS are the ones that dominate the Linux market for end users
