Other Alternatives

  • Jose Dieguez Castro


In this chapter, I show you some general purpose distros that I want to analyze in detail, because they either offer a good alternative or have peculiarity that is remarkable enough to draw your attention. There are notable absences like Red Hat, SUSE or CentOS, but the type of user who is going to choose to install and manage those corporate-oriented distros mostly likely won’t need to read a book like this to make that decision. Also, because I focused this book on desktop distros and skipped environments like the cloud or servers, other interesting and promising distros like Papyros and Apricity OS are not covered here.
