"Ms. Carla Schroder shared a list of her "bestest distros"
recently, so I thought I might follow suit. She called hers
"not-usual" and looking at her list, I'd say my choices are
probably a little more usual. In any case, here are my top five
favorite Linux distributions for 2010, in no real order.
"SimplyMEPIS has always been one of my favorite distributions
for several reasons. SimplyMEPIS was one of the first to understand
that looks do matter and so does out of the box functionality. It
includes proprietary drivers, codecs, and browser plugins that make
using Linux enjoyable. It leans toward the conservative side
concerning new version of its components, but that makes for an
extremely stable operating system. In all its years I only ran into
one release that gave me any trouble, and that was about three or
four years ago - possibly when it went through its Ubuntu phase. It
is truly one of the best."
