  • Seven Linux Distros

    Linux distro comparison of Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Manjaro, Slacko Puppy, Lubuntu, Zorin OS, and Debian Jessie with the Raspberry Pi Desktop!

    All distros were downloaded as an ISO image and written to USB media (for testing and/or full installation) using Etcher, which is available from: https://etcher.io/

    The different distros featured in this video can be obtained from the following links. Please note that all of the below are provided in good faith, and that testing and/or installing a new operating system should be done with care. Testing a distro from a USB drive should not delete files or otherwise damage your computer. However, actually installing a new operating system will replace your existing one unless you decide to dual boot, and this can cause issues . . .
