Fedora

Fedora

This Linux distro is based on GNU/Linux and owned by Red Hat. This Linux distro doesn’t make its own desktop environment or other software. Rather, it uses “upstream” software, giving a platform that integrates all this upstream software without adding their own custom tools or patching it too much. This OS comes with the GNOME 3 desktop environment by default, although you can also get “spins” which come with other desktop environments.

Arch Linux

Arch Linux

If you want to try a less user-friendly distro, then this is the best choice for you. Arch Linux allows you to customize your build by using the terminal to download and install packages. It’s especially helpful for developers and those with older machines who may not want unnecessary packages to take up space.

openSUSE

This Linux distro is based on Linux and it is the community-based project sponsored by SUSE and other companies. It is mainly designed for developers and system administrators. Due to which, it’s extremely stringent on security protocols.

This operating system is divided into two main distributions: openSUSE Leap and Tumbleweed. Leap uses the source code from SUSE Linux Enterprise, that makes it much more stable.
Tumbleweed is Factory based. It follows a rolling release model i.e packages are made available for download as soon as they’ve been tested in Factory. This means Tumbleweed has the latest stable applications, hence is good for day-to-day use.
