What's a distro?

glossaryDistro is just a shortened word for distribution and refers to all the different flavours of Linux.

How many are there?

There are hundreds to choose from, and each distribution has it's own marketplace that it caters for.

  • If reliability is your top requirement, try Debian.
  • If you need speed try Puppy Linux.
  • If you want ease of use, you could try Ubuntu.
