    Re: What distro are you trying right now?

    I have Debian 8 and Debian 9 here at the moment and waiting for the BunsenLabs Helium (Debian 9) ISO to come out. I like Debian because of it's 3 year cycle and will probably keep D8 running as long as I get security updates IF this old computer lasts that long.

    Installing apt-listbugs in Debian SID and being careful about holding back critical bugs, SID is really quite stable as well. Two things to watch for on updates:

    1. apt wants to install a new kernel and you see 100+ programs to be removed: STOP do not upgrade.
    2. 'python' - when you see problems with python ... back out and wait a few days

    They are pretty quick to fix bugs in SID - more so than in testing IMH experience.

    Tumbleweed is surprisingly stable too, for a rolling release. They have some QA testing system that I heard Red Hat is also using now.
    Linux provides freedom, the problem is most users don't know what it is or how to use it.

    Re: What distro are you trying right now?

    I installed Tumbleweed again after having stopped using it for Fedora 22. Now I have it installed and testing it again.

    What I wrote elsewhere was..

    if on SUSE, stay on SUSE. If on Fedora, stay on Fedora. (SUSE and Fedora are almost identical twins)

    Red Hat 5.1 is quite zippy with four cores, and none of that buggy modern stuff

    Re: What distro are you trying right now?

    Just watched a YouTube video about Solus 3.
    It seems interesting. What is interesting is the interface which is not Gnome or Mate or KDE.

    I will give it a spin. Hopefully it installs with Grub. Solus 3 Budgie

    interface seems responsive and unlike Vanilla Gnome, is organized by categories. It also appears to have a dash bar or two.

    Re: What distro are you trying right now?

    Budgie is nice, I have it in VM. The only thing that I disliked during the installation phase was the lack of partitioning options. It seems to be yet another OS that wants to be the sole installation.

    This doesn't matter so much in a VM but if you have existing partitions and another OS it may present an issue.

    As for operability it is very polished and exceedingly pleasant to use. the package manager is one of the best I've seen and offers up everything you're likely to want or ever need including proprietary stuff.

    It is actually a rolling distribution. They just changed the numbering recently to give a 'version' change.
