So... what's the best Linux distro just for a fuck-around machine? I already have a Windows gaming machine so no need to take that into consideration, but for a laptop for uni where I'm studying CS and doing a lot of programming, what's the best distro?

Alpine linux

Ubuntu so you can spend time programming and not ricing your system for screenfetch threads

>> No.62359021

You really want a fuck around machine? You reallly wanna fuck around? I am not memeing you, install Gentoo.

All kinds of fucking around to be had there. Enjoy

Maybe Ubuntu or OpenSuse.

>> No.62359075

The best Linux distro is the one you actually sit down and use.

I did this too... I spent way to much time tweaking and modifying configs on my desktop when I ran Linux. Now I shamefully use Windows and have a Vagrant box for development.

I like manjaro, but that's only because there's a nice i3 version available. No fucking around, bit of a learning curve

>> No.62359442

Ubuntu or Antergos.

I work on GNOME for a living and I too am an imposter.

I like lubuntu. It's pretty lightweight so maybe good for your laptop. Been using it for a year and a half and I've resintalled once a month or so ago so pretty good stability. I also downloaded 'everything' on it at first so I'm more conservative with it now. You can do an openbox session with it as well for more snappiness. I haven't been able to break with all the fucking around I do on it.

I switched back to Windows over this too. I even like Visual Studio now.
