12 Ubuntu derivatives you should consider
It’s no secret that Ubuntu 10.10, or Maverick Meerkat, is one of the most user-friendly Linux distributions of all time for business and home users.
What many people don’t realize, however, is that there are several other Linux distributions out there that are also based on Ubuntu and offer many of the same advantages. Some are focused on a specific niche; others are simply variations on the same general theme.
If you’re already a fan of Ubuntu or simply want to experience what the excitement is all about, consider the following alternatives for what just may be an even more perfect match with your business’s needs.
For Linux Beginners: Linux Mint and Pinguy OS
With version 10, or “Julia,” hot off the presses, Linux Mint is the third most popular Linux distribution, behind only Ubuntu itself and Fedora. Many people find Mint even easier to use than Ubuntu, at least in part because it’s designed to provide a more complete out-of-the-box experience by including browser plugins, media codecs, support for DVD playback, Java and other components.
