Linux Distro Selection Criteria

Abstract

Now that you know what a Linux distribution is and why there are so many, the next step is to find a way to compare and screen them. The best way to do this is by choosing a series of factors that you can use to measure and classify the various Linux distros objectively, without bias in your reasoning. It is OK to listen to the opinion of a colleague or a Linux expert, or to read an article or review, and so on, but it is very rare to find a source that is completely unbiased or that matches your particular situation. I strongly advise you to take these factors into account and weigh the most important ones based on your needs. Then you can choose the distribution that is the strongest based on those needs. This book will help you make an informed decision.
