Linux Flavor?
« on: 16. February 2017., 16:06:25 »
I was a dabbler in linux back when the various flavors started gaining momentum. Before Fedora, Red Hat was what I preferred until they started charging for it. It's been a few years now, and I want to get back into it. I'm comfortable with RPM's, and have gotten to know the file layout and structure of Fedora/RH, and I was wondering what you use, and why you chose your flavor/dist. Also, how car has wine/cxoffice come in the past few years?

I use mostly Ubuntu, because I like debian more ;p
Nowdays if you like RH, you can go with CentOS or Fedora

I use openSUSE Leap. It is a great flavor. You could use openSUSE Tumbleweed.
Both of these distros use RPM packages.
If you are familiar with RPM then use one of the two.
Leap is a static release distro, meaning you get updates for the system, periodically.
Tumbleweed is a rolling-release distro, meaning, you get to use cutting-edge technology all the time.
