Best Linux distributions for beginners   

Let's face it, Linux can pose an overwhelming complexity to new users. But then, it's not Linux itself that brings this complexity. Rather, it's the "newness" factor that causes this.

Not knowing where to start can be a downer. Especially for someone who does not have the concept of something else running on their PC in place of Windows or MacOS.

Linux is more than an OS. It's an idea where everybody grows together and there's something for everybody.

best privacy-focused Linux distributions   

This article shows you the list of best privacy-focused Linux distributions. This article is intended for readers who are extremely concerned about their only privacy.

Privacy is a serious and much-debated issue. In this age of cyber espionage and electronic surveillance, privacy becomes a crucial subject.

While most of us Linux users care about our privacy to an extent, some people take it to an 'extreme level'. Such people are often termed 'privacy freaks' (not in a derogatory manner).

Remix OS: Is This the Droid You Were Looking For?   

Ever wanted to try Android on your PC but there weren't any really usable projects? Now you can. Remix OS is an Android based operating system that's designed to offer a full-fledged desktop PC-like experience. The developers have done a lot of work to implement many desktop-centric features such as multi-window multi-tasking. It offers a very familiar interface inspired by Windows, so the learning curve is not that steep. If you have used Android before, you will find yourself at home.

Remix OS is being developed by Jide Technologies, a company founded by three ex-Googlers, "with a mission to unlock the potential of Android in order to accelerate a new age of computing," reads the "about us" page.

Safe software download sites   

There was a time when we went to some good download sites and clicked on the Download button to download software. And what we got was software. But times have changed now, and things have gotten a bit messy. Now you have to be very careful before you click on any Download button or link, because you never know what you may end up with! You may go visit a download site to download, say our 340KB Ultimate Windows Tweaker, and end up with a bunch of other crapware you did not ask for!

Debian's long-term support experiment   

Debian Linux, which calls itself "The Universal Operating System," is a huge and popular Linux variant. Debian was one of the first Linux distributions, and it remains one of the largest, with over 43,000 software packages. Unlike many other leading Linux distros, Debian is not backed directly by a company, and it is managed democratically by the many volunteers who populate the Debian mailing list.

Despite its reputation as an all-free, counter-cultural collection for hackers, Debian is also quite stable and reliable, which makes it a viable option for many corporate networks. But after many years of Linux in the enterprise, admins have a pretty clear idea of what they want: a system that will operate for several years without requiring an upgrade.
