    Linux Mint and Elementary OS are two of the most popular Ubuntu-based Linux distros. They both are known for their respective homegrown desktop environments. Mint and Elementary have a huge fan following and are highly appreciated for their gorgeous desktops. They both might be based on Ubuntu, but the similarities end right there both these distros are miles apart from each other.

    So, how do they compare against each other? Which among them is the best? Which among them is more suitable FOR You? Linux Mint or Elementary OS. Let's find out.

    Elementary OS features the Pantheon desktop environment. Now pantheon desktop is clean, elegant and just so beautiful to look at. One can feel the resemblance to the MacOS desktop.
    Everything, from the indicators to the wallpapers look so neat. The Application launcher is minimal, spacious and has a convenient search. It has 2 layouts, one is the default one and the other a category wise arrangement of apps.

    All the apps integrate really smooth with the desktop theming. Looking at the overall setup, Elementary feels so organized and has a sense of calm to the desktop. And You'll just love the wallpaper pack.

    Linux Mint, on the other hand, is famous for its homegrown Cinnamon desktop. Cinnamon has a very huge fan following. And looking at it, it's quite clear why.
    Cinnamon desktop is highly intuitive, elegant and just so gorgeous to look at. The menu is organized and accessible. Unlike GNOME desktop, the menu does not cut the users workflow. Controlling your computer is really easy. Linux Mint's interface is quite amazing.

    Cinnamon is also highly customizable with a wide range of themes and additional widgets called spices. The effects and animations are there, but not so much that they distract you from your work. Linux Mint scores top points in the interface department.

  • Top 3 Best Desktop Linux Distros | 2019 Edition!

    Here it is! ~ My top 3 favorite desktop Linux distributions, 2019 Edition!

    In this video, we'll look at Linux Mint, elementaryOS, KDE Neon, as well as Solus Linux, and Manjaro!

    I want to clarify what I mean by "Desktop Linux Distribution" - basically any Linux distro that is specifically made for the "everyman" Linux user. There are lots of Linux distros with specialized purposes, such as Kali Linux, but there are also distros that are tailored for developers or sysadmin work. Pop_OS, for example, is a fantastic distro, but I feel it is geared towards developers rather than everyday desktop users.

  • Pop OS Vs Zorin OS | Which is the best NEXT-GEN Linux Distro?

    Pop OS and Zorin OS are two next-gen Linux distros that ship with advanced features. They are the next iteration in the evolution of desktop Linux. In this video, I will compare then side by side with respect to performance, speed, looks, stability, and features and we'll decide which among the two is the best. Which one is more suitable for You.

    As an eternal distro hopper, I try out a lot of Linux distros, and every now and then, there comes a Linux distro which brings a lot of new things to the table. But the success of such unique distros is not always guaranteed. Mainly because the Linux world is filled with exceptional distros and the competition is cutthroat.

    Zorin and POP OS are two distros that brought something new to the table and were smash hits with downright stunning features. Used by hundreds of thousands of people, they are the next iteration in the evolution of desktop Linux.

    Two breathtaking distros with stunning looks, superior workflows, and state of the art tech. Let's take a closer look and see how they compare against each other in terms of speed, performance, stability, ease of use and tech support. Which one of these two is the best? Which one is more suitable for You? Zorin OS or Pop OS.

    There's a lot to cover in this cumulative update to elementary OS 5 Juno. This point release combines all of the work that the elementary team has put into their OS over the last 12 months. Updated ISOs also mean an up to date HWE stack - which might be just what I've needed.
