This page is a collection of Linux related stuff in a broader sense. This
includes the OS proper, but also general tools (like GNU tools) and Linux
specific software and wee hacks.
My favourite software:
Distributions (see best Linux distros (2011), Top 7 Linux Distros (2014) (unusual selection)):

- Red Hat strand:
Red Hat, main commercial distro
- CentOS, good server distro
- Fedora, OpenSource version of RedHat
- Linux Mandriva, good general purpose distro
search RPMs), easy-urpmi
- Mageia, a fork of Mandriva since 2010
Connectiva, merged with Mandrake into Mandriva
SuSe (RPM based)
- OpenSUSE, good for Windows style desktop
- Debian strand:
- Slackware based:
- Arch, highly configurable, low resource distro (Wiki)
- Chakara, an Arch Linux derivate
