  • Top 3 Most Ambitious Linux Distros For 2018

    Here are my picks of the 3 most ambitious and exciting Linux distros for 2018.

    Keep in mind that I'm not saying these are the best Linux distributions; I'm saying these are the distros I'm keeping my eye on for this year.

    If your favorite distro isn't in this short list, it probably means that:

    A. I don't think it is exciting
    B. I don't really like it (Debian, Ubuntu, Mint, etc)
    C. I don't know about it

    There's a lot to be excited about this year, so let's get excited!

  • Nitrux OS 1.0.15 Review – Absolutely gorgeous looking Linux OS

    Nitrux OS comes with Nomad Desktop on KDE Plasma 5, and is based on Ubuntu 18.10. However, the preference is to use AppImage files instead of Deb packages.

    Nitrux have included their own unique Nomad Software Center for installing AppImage applications, and Nomad Firewall manager.
    Kvantum Manager has been preinstalled to further tweak the styling of KDE apps

  • Ubuntu Studio: Creative Linux Distro

    Ubuntu Studio combines the Ubuntu Linux operating system with a wide range of free creative applications. In this video I install the software and demonstrate the Audacity audio editor, Yoshimi synthesizer, Hydroden drum sequencer, GIMP photo editor, Inkspace vector graphics package, Krita and MyPaint digital painting programs, Scribus DTP package, Blender 3D modeller, and the Kdenlive, OpenShot and Pitivi video editors.

    You can download Ubuntu Studio from: https://ubuntustudio.org/

    The Etcher utility I use to create a bootable USB drive is at: https://etcher.io/

    My previous videos on some of the creative software shown here include:

  • 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.

    Be sure to check out the companion article I wrote for this video on Medium - https://medium.com/@egee_irl/top-3-beginner-friendly-linux-distros-f3cd6bbd725d
