Linux Distributions   
Printable Version

One of the great features about Linux is that it is released by many different companies/groups of people. These different releases are known as "Distributions" and they will vary from company to company. Some of the differences you will find are installlation methods, bundled software/desktops, technical support & hardware support.

One of the most common questions we see is "Which distribution should I use?" The answer to that really depends on what you are looking to use Linux for. The purpose of this page isn't to point you to one distribution over another, but to give you an idea of which distribution will suit your needs and give you the least amount of problems.

A great start would be to visit the website of the particular Linux Distribution you are interested in. Below is a list of the more popular distributions and a little information about them. Where possible, we've also included links to their ISO Images.

If you don't see your favorite distribution listed please contact us and we'll definitely get it added!
