Hi, I'm currently taking a software dev course and curious to try using linux for software development. There's tons of linux distros and my question is, what's the best or ideal linux distro for it?

    Potentially pick one that oriented to what you want to do. Do a little research into what each distro is geared too.

    Start with Debian-based systems like Ubuntu or mint. Once you learn your way around the shell, try arch.

    @dev-nope for example CentOS is oriented towards a secure environment for servers amongst other things. A lot less flexibility and support for third party packages. Some that are focused on long term support and stability. Some that are experimental and bleeding edge. Etc etc

    I'd say take Antergos and once you are comfortable with it do an Arch install 🙂

    The same question all over again.

    Google "Linux Distros" and take a look at all of it. Pick one that looks cool and install.

    It really doesn't matter which distro you should use at the first time. Just pick one and enjoy the freedom :)

    Note: Have a separate partition for your /home folder, you will thank me later.
