Thread: Which version of linux...

  1. #1

    Default Which version of linux...

    I at home currently use OpenSuse 10.3 - may i just add i find this a brilliant piece of kit and cannot wait until version 11.

    But which version of linux would you say is the best. I have so far used Opensuse and for the first time ever looked at Sandros on a EEPC we have just purchased at work (everyone for remote use from work take a look at this under 300 quid)

    But in upmost honesty which do you actually think is the best Linux operating system and Why?

    Is there a specific OS which is best used for work? Is there one which is made just for home or are they all the same?

    I need answers people to the complete Linux system.

    There's no such thing as best. All distros have their pros and cons. In the end, it all comes to personal perference. For me, of course, openSUSE is best but for someone else, Ubuntu or Fedora might be best...

    Having, at one time or another, tested quite a few Linux versions I've found SuSE to be the most consistently reliable in a business environment.

    Yes 10.1 was a miserable release but apart from that and ripping out ZMD so far anything after 9.x has been a good workhorse for many different tasks - I mainly deploy SuSE as a server platform for various tasks many of them being "business critical" and it hasn't failed me yet. (Can't say the same for Debian, Fedora or Solaris - although Solaris isn't a distro).

    Cool Re: Which version of linux...

    You will have a job to find better than openSuSE 10.3 and 11 when it's out.

    Hardy Heron ain't bad either works fine for me.

    Cheers guys im guessing that its worth me staying with Suse 10.3 then. Is it worth actually worth installing 10.3 on to this new laptop or wait until 11. I know that with most operating systems you have to wait a few weeks / months before they iron out the bugs. Is that the same with linux?

    Depends on the laptop. I bought an HP 530 and put 11.0 on it, thinking it
    was a waste of time installing 10.3. As I expected, I had trouble with the
    wireless chip - a BCM510. I scrubbed 11.0 and installed 10.3 and, after a
    lot of hassle, got the chip working. Thought I'd got it sussed and updated
    to 11.0. The wireless connection failed again so now I'm back to 10.3 and
    due to have another bash at getting the card installed again.
