    That depends on your tastes, needs and a lot of other things. : S There is no definitive answer. Search the blog. We have made many articles such as: The best distros for musicians, for children, etc. Cheers! Paul.

    Ubuntu leaves much to be desired ??? yes, indeed ... many distros want to have their place, and it is not the best distro !!! but it is the best known and much better than Windows. . .

    GARFIO has been developed for a long time, Ubuntu is just doing something like people, obviously to gain market, since Ubuntu itself leaves much to be desired
