Test your Linux environment, before installing

Postby Theodore » Sun Jun 16, 2019 11:57 pm

If you've ever wondered about switching to Linux for folding,
Or ever wanted a change of scenery, and try out a different Linux build,
But don't know where to start,
I recommend this website:
https://distrotest.net/

You can test-drive a few operating systems, before installing.
It's general Linux stuff, but perhaps by trying, some might choose to try out something different for a change.

I myself was trying out Zorin OS.

The usage is very basic, and slow. As soon as Forbes posted a link to the site, their servers overloaded quickly. It also has a wait time.

While I have no difficulty with you suggesting that people can experiment with other distros, I strongly recommend that folks limit their choices to distros that are supported by FoldingAtHome.
