Linux Distros


  A lot of people always ask what are the best Linux Distros . They also ask which Linux Distros work best with Ham Radio. Below is a list of the 12 best Linux Distros on the internet.
  1.  Zorin
  2. Ubuntu
  3. Linux Mint
  4. Debian
  5. Fedora
  6. Red Hat Enterprise Linux (Server Software)
  7. SUSE Linux Enterprise
  8. Mandriva
  9. Arch Linux
  10. Slackware Linux
  11. Puppy Linux
  12. Linux Bodhl
  Now of course these are not the only Linux Distributions available on the internet. I myself have only used Linux Zorin, Linux Mint, Ubuntu and Fedora . I do not use Fedora all that often. I stick mainly with Linux Zorin, Mint and Ubuntu. I have all these installed on my multiboot computer that also includes windows 7. So I generally switch to which ever Linux Distro I want or to windows 7.
  Of course some of the Linux Distros are easier to use than others. I have found that Linux Zorin, Linux Mint and Linux Ubuntu are easier to use than say for example Fedora. You will find that after you work with one of the Linux Distros it will be easier to use for most functions.
  There are some special Linux Distros out there for Ham Radio Amateurs. Generally they have  quite a few different programs in them for Ham Radio Operators. Some of them may just be a live cd where you don't actually install it. Basically you just run off the cd. Here is a short list of them below.
  1. Andy's Ham Radio Linux
  2. Shackbox
  3. Harv's Hamshack Hack
  4. Debian Dxpedition Disk
  5. Digipup Based On Puppy Linux
  6. Slackware Linux
  7. Ham Radio Linux Live DVD Ver 14
  Of course Linux Ubuntu is always listed as the top Linux Distro for Ham Radio Applications. My advise is to look these up on the internet and read about them.

HP Hewlett Packard Is Introuducing A New Computer In 2015

                             HP COMPUTER USING LINUX++
  So what is this new computer Hewlett Packard is introducing this year in 2015. Well it is a computer using a Linux Operating System. It will be called Linux++ and will have nothing to do with Microsoft. There will be no part of Windows in this either. I am sure all the gurus out there that always have bad things to say about Linux will be biting there lips. I always hear someone say oh Linux is the poor mans operating system. Another popular thing the Know It All s say is that there isn't any help with Linux. That just shows they really don't know much about it. Just like the old saying goes we always mock what we don't know and that's always true.
