And what a peculiar time he chose to do it.
“Doing what?” you might ask, and I’ll answer you … soon … pretty soon … very soon … immediately … RIGHT FUKN NOWNOW!
Tom of the YT channel Switched to Linux made a video (gasp!) and in this video he gives us a rundown of his Top 5 personal bestest Linux distros 2018. Got it now why I thought mid February is a peculiar time to publish year’s best lists?
If I, and probably you to, would make a year’s best list I’d make it at the end of December or in very early January. And I’d make it for the past year. Because only then I can tell how well any candidate on my list performed throughout the whole year. Imagine I’d vote SL as bestest #1 virtual world in 2018 right now … and in a couple weeks they go bust! 😮 It would make me look like a fool, no?
Well, that’s Tom’s prob, not ours. Let’s just take it as it is and agree or disagree with his choices. Watch:
I’ve gotta say he’s made a good choice. Reasonable and well chosen. Nothing fancy but all very respected and well-established distros. Not that any of the runner-ups (Peppermint, Debian, Ubuntu) would make it on my list … but, hey, they are serviceable. What I want you to look at specifically are his top picks for #2 and #1 particularly. Manjaro and Linux Mint must be my most favouritetistest Linux distros in the history of ever as well. And that’s also why I don’t do any Top 5 lists anymore. Mint for you, Manjaro for me, two spots on my list must be enough.
Very well done, Tom, and may I congratulate you on your splendid taste? Just that timing problem of yours … we’ve gotta talk about that.
And congratz me for being me and being proven right. Didn’t I always tell you how brilliant I am? Believe me now? Well, I linked to both distros just a minute ago and you can grab all the goodness directly from the linked sites.
So what are you waiting for?
In the meantime, while you’re waiting for the download to finish, have a pic of twins, separated at birth:
* Whichever furball you prefer will be the distro you pick. If you’re a n00b your kat/puppy shall be Mint. If you’re an old salt and want the total awesomeness and spend hours and hours on making the shit run your spirit animal shall be Manjaro.
