Spread the love

In this post, I take a look at the best Linux distributions of 2022, and spoiler: not all of them are built on Ubuntu!

I know: I make the same joke every year I do this. But hey: I’m writing about Ubuntu. I am using Ubuntu. Are you Mayonnaise You expect me to keep everything about Ubuntu. But the Linux ecosystem? is more than Only ubuntu. There are many top-tier Linux distributions that deserve praise, celebration, and recognition. This listing is my little way of giving you just that!

However, the following is not a position of superiority, nor an order of importance. It’s just me, anyone, screaming Some One of the best Linux releases of the year. Is it all inclusive? No, it’s not effective either, so if you like the OS No The omission below is not because I think it’s terrible!

With the SEO gods (we hope) sated with this lengthy introduction, let’s take a look at my top 5 Linux distros of 2022!

1.Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

A quick look at what’s new on 22.04.2007

you can say the For me, the best Linux distro release of the year was Ubuntu 22.04 LTS, which arrived in April.

Long-term support releases are always a big deal, since tens of millions of people use them. Fortunately, the dedicated Ubuntu developers have released a release that deserves attention.

Put your obsessions aside (see video) jellyfish jam Bought GNOME Shell 42, configurable accent colors, Wayland by default, new multitasking options, new dock options, better desktop icon extension, Linux kernel 5.15, Raspberry Pi 4 support. etc.) of updated applications, tools and packages.

Although I am a tentative release racer, always have been and probably always will be, most people stick with the LTS version. And with Ubuntu 22.04, they’re getting a build good enough to use for the lifetime of support, without fomo.

2. Fedora 37 Workstation

Perfect finish: Fedora 37

Fedora Workstation is the leading desktop Linux distribution for good reason: it’s powerful, reliable, and finely crafted: it embodies what many people are looking for: a “pure” GNOME experience, delivered as the developers intended, plus a robust and stable. base.

Fall show Fedora Workstation 37 introduces Gnome 43: an update that vastly improves the user experience with GNOME Shell quick settings. There are also more features records rebuilt in GTK4/libadwaita; Renovated Calendar Program; a device security Equipment; Raspberry Pi 4 compatibility; GRUB instead of syslinux in BIOS; and more.

People often overlook Fedora Workstation because, like most Linux distributions, it’s low-key, straightforward, and drama-free. However, it’s a stylish and functional distro that ignores the fancy flourishes to focus entirely on its performance, integrity, and consistency.

If you’ve never tried Fedora, you’re missing out, so fix it!

3. Manjaro 22.0 “Sikaris”

Manjaro 22.0 “Sikaris”, on the site

that a A copy of Manjaro should have appeared on this list, it was obvious. And out of the Arch-based Linux distributions, Manjaro is one of the best Linux distributions out there. Oh I know: Manjaro is talked about within the broader Linux community, but for me those storms in my cup of tea never affect the quality of the distribution itself (or should it be the flavor ☕️).

Manjaro 22.0 ‘Sikaris’ is not just a distro: it’s an experience

The incarnation of this is version 22.0 of Manjaro, released in December. The “main” service with Kiddy Plasma offers a seamless experience. Everything from the wrapper to the package manager to custom touches and apps is cohesive, thoughtful, and designed.

Manjaro 22.0 is not just a distribution, it is an experience.

The desktop “versions” of Manjaro are also well packaged. They have never felt like Manjaro Plus xfce, Plus gnomes etc. Each one is a handpicked and beautifully integrated sample of your desktop’s strengths, or to put it in less flowery terms: no matter which version of Manjaro you choose, it always seems to be Major A.

In addition, the Manjaro community is large and active. For any issues that come up, I’ll probably find a Manjaro forum post about it (or someone willing to point me in the direction of a solution). social comunication He is An important aspect of any distro. The Linux kernel is the heart of most distributions, but its community is the lifeblood.

Manjaro is the complete package, the defining distribution of the year.

4.Linux Mint 21

Linux Mint 21.1.2 Update The latest and most visually interesting update (check out the new apps and updated artwork), the original release of Linux Mint 21 had the biggest impact this year, of the two.

A highly touted “entry level” distro, Linux Mint’s core goals of delivering a lightweight and familiar computing experience that stays out of the way still resonates with users tuned into the way Windows works.

Linux Mint 21 “Cinnamon” is lightweight and efficient, making it a good choice for low-end and older hardware. In addition to being easy to use, Linux Mint comes with an interesting set of pre-installed software that is intended to cover the needs of most users, including some local applications that are quite special.

Overall, Linux Mint 21 is the perfect choice for users who want a reliable and easy-to-use operating system.

5.Ubuntu 22.10

A quick look at what’s new on 10/22/2020

Ubuntu twice in one list? It’s a bit much, but including PipeWire means I’m forced to include 22.10. Honestly, it’s in my contract as the editor of this site:when? Yes, I wrote the contract myself… Why do you ask?

But seriously, the aforementioned Ubuntu 22.10 plugin for Pipe Wire (despite the delay) means that most Bluetooth audio devices “just work” with Ubuntu. This pairs with GNOME’s audio device switcher quick settings It means that Ubuntu 22.10 hits the spot with modern audio equipment.

Second, increased shipments of GNOME 43 and a number of libadwaita ports meant that kinetic kudo Arrived on the scene with true dynamism – was one of the older ways to experience GNOME 43, for context – which has been absent since the early days of Unity.

Finally, and without a doubt, the most important, decisive and defining component of the distribution was kinetic kudo pet wallpaper – the The best Ubuntu default wallpaper since hardy heronInternational Maritime Organization.
