Alright, so you don't have to do that stuff, but what you *must* do is sign up, seriously, this site gets so much guest traffic it's unbelievable. And I can't have this site grow on guests.

Linux list for New Users

1 Linux list for New Users on August 30th 2011, 6:48 pm

There are many linuxes out there that you can pick and choose from... However, which one is right for you? Art, gaming, writing compositions, office-work, for the kids... It's all relevant when choosing your distribution of choice. So I've decided to write a list down of the best ones for each topic that I know of, for those who would like some help on the subject.

Art:
ArtistX 1.1
Homepage

Spoiler:
It's an Ubuntu 11.04 based live DVD that turns a common computer into a
full multimedia production studio: "ArtistX 1.1 is created with the
Remastersys software for live DVDs and includes the 2.6.38 Linux kernel,
GNOME 2.32 and KDE 4.6, Compiz Fusion and about 2500 free multimedia
software packages, nearly everything that exists for the GNU/Linux
operating system organized in the Gnome menu. Main features: based on
Ubuntu 11.04 "Natty Narwhal" with all updates (from April 2011), Compiz
for 3D desktop effects; most of GNU/Linux multimedia packages and the
very easy Ubiquity installer.

Really this version of Ubuntu surprises me, it functions really well, and I love the ease of use

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Office Work:
Linux Mint
Homepage

Spoiler:
The purpose of Linux Mint is to produce a modern, elegant and comfortable operating system which is both powerful and easy to use.

Started in 2006, Linux Mint is now the 4th most widely used home operating system behind Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac OS and Canonical's Ubuntu.

Some of the reasons for the success of Linux Mint are:

-It works out of the box, with full multimedia support and is extremely easy to use.
-It's both free of cost and open source.
-It's community-driven. Users are encouraged to send feedback to the project so that their ideas can be used to improve Linux Mint.
-Based on Debian and Ubuntu, it provides about 30,000 packages and one of the best software managers.
-It's safe and reliable. Thanks to a conservative approach to software updates, a unique Update Manager and the robustness of its Linux architecture, Linux Mint requires very little maintenance (no regressions, no antivirus, no anti-spyware...etc).

I've used this Linux time and time again with little problems, especially since it's very flexible with those lower-end machines

Entertainment:
Element OS
Homepage

Spoiler:
Element was founded in April 2009 with the mission to provide an intuitive, aesthetic , and free open source operating system for the Media Center and Home Theater PC experience. With this in mind close attention has been paid to moving the PC out of the traditional office/desktop environment and into the living room, by developing a computing environment designed around the concepts of an across the room or ten-foot interface.

Being one of many open-source operating systems based on Linux we have placed a strong emphasis on 'Being Not Just Another Linux Distribution'. Our media-centric approach, along with our unique easily understandable interface and the technologies used to make it all possible are what we believe set us apart from the rest of the crowd.

I haven't used this one, but I heard about it from a very reliable friend who said it's better than Mythbuntu.

Hacking:
Katana Security Suite
Homepage

Spoiler:
Katana is a portable multi-boot security suite which brings together many of today's best security distributions and portable applications to run off a single Flash Drive. It includes distributions which focus on Pen-Testing, Auditing, Forensics, System Recovery, Network Analysis, and Malware Removal. Katana also comes with over 100 portable Windows applications; such as Wireshark, Metasploit, NMAP, Cain & Abel, and many more.

I cannot tell you how truly amazing this suite is... It combines *everything* that you would need for a pen-testing environment and more. And with the replacing of a newer BackTrack 5 instead of 4 *not very hard*, sorry this isn't for people new to Linux, but really hacking isn't N00b friendly in all honesty.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm planning on adding more to the list, and if you disagree with me, tell me why and I might change it... if you find any of this helpful, say thanks and maybe +1 my rep.

Enjoy pirat

...You've got to ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?

I aim to please... Although, you should know ahead of time that I don't aim very high.
