Linux for desktop

tux versus windows

Could this finally be the year of the Linux desktop?

Probably not!

Windows continues to dominate the desktop market by a wide margin, although MacOS has been steadily gaining users since their switch to Intel processors in 2006. Still Linux maintains a small but devout following particularly among developers and network administrators.

Linux remains much more common for servers but here we will focus on the more traditional Linux distributions and more specifically on their desktop variants
