What linux distributions is everyone using?

<< < (17/19) > >>

Debian and now for 20 years almost. Very stable and still (some?) possibility to get somewhat "latest" packages if needed. I think it is not about distribution it is about your selections that make this or that heavy/light/or so. I have now used i3 tiling thingy with some "extensions" for very long and would not go back to resizing "float" windows (not talking os now) hazzle. I3 comes with multiple desktops but is not the most easy to start with. However still pretty much easier than awesome for example. Whatever you take (specially ubuntu / debian or derivant) don't install everything and specially not with all "recommends".

I installed Debian 12 at home a couple of weeks ago, for s/w development. I started out using XFCE but I switched to Cinnamon after a few days. So far it's all working well.

I don't need any file-manager, desktop-manager, session manager.

Don't 'awesome' or 'i3' fit the bill?
