  • 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!
