First of all, sorry if I'm posting at wrong section, since I don't know where to put. My question is, which one is suitable for me between Linux Mint & Elementary OS.
I will use Linux platform as my main OS for desktop home usage. I will use it for my Thesis Project (eg:Web browsing/words/editing/programming/music/video) non gaming for me at all.
As far as I heard, Linux Mint is stable OS currently and very lite. But, I fall in love with Elementary OS interface, but Elementary OS is not pretty stable like Mint. Is there any method to adapt overall interface Mint similar to Elementary OS? Or does Elementary OS is suit for my home usage?
Thank you in advance for sifus, sorry for my bad english btw
if you want to do REAL
work, then use a major distro with simple but stable UI.
If you are using Elementary OS, you may ended wasting more of your time literally using the OS itself by figuring out missing stuff, trying not to break the already fragile GUI, or even compiling supposedly unnecessary things (and get rekt solving dependencies).
hardcore Linux promoter always bait potential users with nice screenshot. But they don't tell you the horror behind it. <--prove me wrong
Look for the giants like Fedora, openSUSE, or Mint, preferably with Gnome GUI or its derivatives. (I found there are too many distractions with KDE. Its okay if you don't mind some clutters).
Doing everyday activities would be more awesome with latest and greatest stuff, so you may want to look for constantly updated rolling release distro like openSUSE Tumbleweed or Arch, ..well, if you are okay with updates knocking your door on daily basis though.
This is just my personal experience and opinion. eOS gives me headache on my hardware and usage pattern, but not others. so YMMV.
Im currently using Gnome on openSUSE Tumbleweed on desktop (and 13.1 on servers) , but the real reason I like openSUSE is for its management toolset that I think is better than other distro.This post has been edited by failed.hashcheck: Aug 31 2015, 06:28 AM
