MattyC157 wrote:Hey. I am new to linux and i have only really used Linux Mint 12/13. I have used Ubuntu a little bit but it does not play well with my hardware.
I was just wandering if there was a different distro that i could look into that is : fast, stable, and relatively easy to use. Linux mint does all that i need to do but i know there is may more distros out there and i would really enjoy exploring them. I would just like to know what many of you prefer and what distros are worth a look.
Could any please tell me some good distros that may work well with my needs as stated above.

I don't agree with you. openSuSE was my first Linux and I enjoyed to have such a too like YaST2 which enables me to configure the system very easily without updating the complex config files with an editor like vi. Frankly - today I update the config files directly . But I still don't want to miss YaST2. Frankly YaST2 it's very old and most current Linux OS offer similar graphic configuration tools./dev/urandom wrote:MattyC157 wrote:I was wandering if OpenSUSE would be worth a look at?

One thought: Bloatware. Although its installer is great, managing the system with that YaST2 thingy is a pain IMO.

I switched to Mint recently @home ( I work with RH & SLES during the day in my office). OpenSuSE is a nice OS as a LAN server @home - but too fat for a desktop/labtop system. I suggest Mint to everybody asking me for my opinion which Linux OS to use as a desktop/labtop system. I don't do this for a production server/dev/urandom wrote:...I guess it is a matter of getting used to it, but if you come from Mint (or Fedora), SuSE might well seem ridiculous to you.

So you're a lucky guy who can decide which distro to use. I have to follow company guidance rules/dev/urandom wrote:...On a server (in case I need to use Linux there because no FreeBSD is around) I would always choose Debian for its stability though...
