50+ Linux operating system distributions list

linux anvar

A Linux operating system is known collectively as a distribution, which includes a wide collection of different components packaged together for specific kinds of users and needs, all free for public use. The most common Linux distribution is called Ubuntu, based on a system called Debian. Although these programs are free, they do require a period of adjustment and some programming knowledge, as changes are made using lines of code, similar to using the Microsoft DOS operating system of yore.

The transparency of Linux distributions means that users can find help and support in many places online. Since qualified programmers worldwide can examine the source code and publicize their own improvements, each user benefits from the pool of common knowledge.
