The members of LinuxQuestions have spoken about their favorite Linux and open-source programs. Their favorite Linux? Would you believe it’s Slackware?
The votes are in. LinuxQuestions, one of the largest Linux groups with 550,000 members, has just posted the results from its latest poll. The winner for the most popular desktop distribution? Slackware! Slackware!? Yes, one of the oldest of Linux distributions won with just over 16 percent of the vote. If that sounds a little odd, it is. On DistroWatch, a site that covers Linux distributions like paint, the top Linux desktop distros are Mint, Debian, Ubuntu, openSUSE, and Manjaro. Slackware comes in 28th place.
