The first barrier that a new Linux user has to face is the overwhelming number of flavors that this operating system has. These flavors are commonly known as distros (from distribution), and to date there are more than three hundred active distros to choose from. So, how to choose one?

Making the wrong decision on this matter is behind a good number of disappointments with this operating system. You need to choose the distro that is right for you and your needs. Introducing Linux Distros teaches you the pros and the cons of the most frequently used distros in order to find the one that is right for you. You will explore each distro step by step, so that you dont have to endure hours of web surfing, countless downloads, becoming confused by new concepts and, in the worst cases, reading complex and marathon installation guides. You will benefit from the authors long-term experience working with each distro hands on, enabling you to choose the best distro for your long-term needs. Linux offers us a wonderful open source alternative to proprietary software, and using Introducing Linux Distros you can decide how to best make it work for you.
