  • Top 3 Best Desktop Linux Distros | 2019 Edition!

    Here it is! ~ My top 3 favorite desktop Linux distributions, 2019 Edition!

    In this video, we'll look at Linux Mint, elementaryOS, KDE Neon, as well as Solus Linux, and Manjaro!

    I want to clarify what I mean by "Desktop Linux Distribution" - basically any Linux distro that is specifically made for the "everyman" Linux user. There are lots of Linux distros with specialized purposes, such as Kali Linux, but there are also distros that are tailored for developers or sysadmin work. Pop_OS, for example, is a fantastic distro, but I feel it is geared towards developers rather than everyday desktop users.

    Be sure to check out the companion article I wrote for this video on Medium - https://medium.com/@egee_irl/top-3-beginner-friendly-linux-distros-f3cd6bbd725d
