Welcom to  Top 10 linux distribution For 2017

1. Debian

With more than 23 years in the Linux ecosystem, Debian stands out for its robustness, stability, and well-oiled release cycle. In addition, it is the distribution with the largest number of available packages and one of the top choices for servers.

The current stable release (version 8, codename Jessie) will be replaced by Debian 9 (codename Stretch) around mid 2017. There are no signs of Debian reverting back to old SysVinit as default system and process manager.

2. Ubuntu

For those individuals and companies who require professional support by a distribution’s creators, Ubuntu stands out. Although professional help is available under a support contract, Ubuntu has a large user base and the community support is outstanding as well.

In addition, Ubuntu is available both in desktop and server editions, and being based on Debian, it is also a rock-solid operating system. The Long-Term Support (LTS) editions have guaranteed support for 5 years after their release date.

In addition, you’ll see on this list that several desktop distributions are based on Ubuntu – and that is another reason for its popularity.

3. Arch Linux

Arch stands out in the Linux ecosystem because it is not based on any other distribution and yet its well know and extensively use by the community.

Arch  is great Linux distros for the people who want to learn everything about Linux I mean from zero.
with arch Linux you have to install everything manually, you will learn all the small pieces of a Linux-based operation system.
arch also one of  the most customizable distro I mean the users are free of customizing the system to them taste.

4. Linux Mint

Linux Mint is a good and  stable, robust, and elegant Ubuntu-based distribution.

One of the reasons behind its popularity is the fact that up until version 17.x it included out of the box a lot of useful software .

in this ended with version 18, leaving it up to the users to install those packages after the operating system is up and running. To make it clear – it’s not that Linux Mint has discontinued support for multimedia codecs and other software it shipped with up until not too long ago.

It is precisely because of this that Linux Mint often is the preferred distribution of both new and experienced users – a complete operating system ready for use after installation. During 2016, 3 releases came out: 17.3 (Rosa), 18 (Sarah), and 18.1 (Serena), based on Ubuntu 14.04 (Rosa and Sarah) and 16.04 (Serena).
