There’s little risk in making any of them the basis for one’s development environment.That said, each of these distros—Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora, CentOS, and OpenSuse—has different strengths and weaknesses, and each balances the needs for flexibility, ease, and stability in its own … [Read more...] about Five rock-solid Linux distros for developers
