It is a new day and a new Linux distro pops out. And the new(old) question remains, DO WE NEED ANOTHER LINUX DISTRO? For the most part, the answer is going to be a very big NO! But for this latest distro on the block, I believe it is a step in the right direction. System76 remains one of the few remaining big players when it comes to selling great Linux computers (DELL also sell great laptops that ship with Linux).
Launched just some days ago, Linux Mint 18.2 “Sonya” is another LTS variant in the series of 18 and 18.1.

It has been quite long since I covered Peppermint in any of my articles. But that does not mean I don't love it. I fell in love with this distro when I used it for the first time(Peppermint OS 6).

Deepin OS, formerly known as Deepin, Linux Deepin, and Hiweed GNU/Linux is a Linux distro with an identity crisis.

Honestly speaking, Deepin OS is surely going to blow you away. I have been keeping an eye on this distro since 2013 and it still manages to impress me.
