LinuxBSDos.com aims to fulfill two main objectives:
- Provide detailed reviews of Linux and BSD distributions
- Provide simple, easy to follow tutorials written with a new user in mind.
Along the way, we’ll be providing daily news updates about events in or related to the Open Source/Free Software community.
With hundreds of Linux and BSD distributions available, the task of finding a distribution which fits your specific needs can be daunting. To make finding one that fits your needs, or finding one that you can customize easily to meet your needs, all distributions reviewed and listed on this site are placed in functional categories. Looking for a desktop-oriented Linux distribution? Look no further than the Desktop & Server category. There you will find distributions listed in alphabetical order. Trying to find a suitable firewall or router distribution? No problem, there is a category for that, too. What about a NAS/SAN, VoIP or Telephony distribution? Ditto.
To also make it easy to find reviews and tutorials written for a specific distribution, every distribution has its own category. You can find the most recent reviews and tutorials listed on each distributions “home” page.
We hope that, if you are already a Linux or BSD user and are looking to try another distro (distro-hopping, as we call it), or you are a Windows users, and looking to try out your first Linux/BSD operating system, that you will find this site useful.
