Computing for many of us, has changed our lives in addition to the lives of those around us. Then there are those of us who discovered that single Linux distro, that changed the way we looked at operating systems forever.
This article highlights Linux distros that helped change everything and from which, pushed forth is Linux adoption hit with a spark of new users.
The above linked article does indeed, present distros that its author feel are distros that changed everything. I would like to add a few others, perhaps related to its inclusion of Debian. Knoppix, honestly, is the de facto distro that made Linux accessible as to people who didn’t want to install Debian years ago. So I am a bit shocked, that it was not included in the above linked list.
