Charles Profitt: Best Linux Distribution: Ubuntu


Published Dec 2 2013 via RSS

I just got my December Linux Journal which features its ‘Readers Choice Awards’. I was pleased to see that Ubuntu came in first place getting 16% of the total vote. I was also happy to see that three of the top four choices were Debian based.

  1. Ubuntu – 16%
  2. Debian – 14.1%
  3. Arch – 10.8%
  4. Mint – 10.5%

That gives Debian based distributions 40.6 % of the total votes just in the top four slots. The break down for Ubuntu variants was as follows:

  1. Ubuntu – 16%
  2. Kubuntu – 3.8%
  3. Xubuntu – 2%
  4. Ubuntu Server – 1.6%
  5. Lubuntu – .5%

There are some other categories which I think were interesting. As often as I read posts and articles maligning Unity it did well. Here is how the best desktop environment broke down:

  1. KDE – 17.9%
  2. Ubuntu/Unity – 12.9%
  3. KDE Plasma – 12.7%
  4. Xfce – 12.1%
  5. Gnome 3 – 14.1% (note: this might be a typo in the magazine — it was listed as 5th, but the number they gave would put it in second)

I was not sure what the difference between KDE and KDE Plasma is but I find it interesting that none of the responses to Gnome 3/Gnome Shell other than Unity made it in to the top five.

To see the other entries and the complete list you can subscribe to Linux Journal.
