Some of my readers are probably wondering, “Huh? What the hell is distro-hopping?”
Well, for the sake of clarity, the term, “Distro-hopping,” is one that is often used by the people of the Linux community to describe the act of switching from one distribution of Linux to another distribution of Linux (Most Linux users are guilty of this type of behaviour).
I would also like to state for the record, that I have done my fair share of distro-hopping.
And, I am going to examine both the pros and the cons of distro-hopping.
Unfortunately, there are a large number of people who would not even dream of giving Linux a try.
And, why is it that a large number of people are afraid of giving Linux a try?
Because, whenever they hear or see the word, “Linux,” they tend to think of a complex operating system that is only used by nerds and hackers.
Okay, I will admit that nerds and hackers are quite fond of Linux; but they are not the only ones who love Linux.
Believe it or not, regular people love Linux too (However, they are the adventurous type of people who enjoy learning new things).
To be most straightforward with you, Linux is way different from Windows 10 or any of the past operating systems that Microsoft released (And, that will involve learning how to use entirely new software).
Yes, my friend, the learning curve is a bit higher when it comes to Linux (But, do not allow that thought to discourage you from dabbling in Linux).
The God’s/Goddess’s truth is that there is a distribution of Linux that is ideal for:
Those people who are new to Linux.
Those people who are at a medium level in regards to their expertise in Linux.
Those people who are highly advanced at using Linux.
So, by all means, choose your distribution of Linux wisely (A simple Google query should enable you to decipher whether or not it is a user-friendly distribution of Linux).
And, since I am eager for you to give Linux a try, I will recommend a few of them to experiment with.
