Escoge una distribución

Because there is no "one GNU/Linux", finding what you need can be difficult. Here are our choice of three beginner-friendly, widely used distributions.

Note: There are plenty of distributions to choose from and compare.
Esta es nuestra selección para los recién llegados. Estos enlaces no son comerciales.

Ubuntu

Sencilla, fácil, lista para usar: Nuestra favorita. Una limpia y suave atmósfera que nunca se interpone en su camino. Todos los programas son mantenidos en orden y fácilmente gestionados. La configuración se mantiene más simple que compleja.

Recomendamos esta distribución si buscas una forma fácil de iniciarte en GNU/Linux.

Ubuntu also has a sister distribution, Kubuntu, with a different layout and slightly more advanced graphics.

Fedora

The distribution by the long-time prominent GNU/Linux developer company Red Hat. The default layout is similar to Ubuntu (it is also possible to use KDE, the more advanced desktop environment in use in Kubuntu), but there are differences in the chosen applications, install protocols and several technical elements.

Recomendamos esta distribución si deseas aprender acerca del funcionamiento del sistema GNU/Linux y su configuración de seguridad, desarrollar software o no dispones de conexión a internet.

Trisquel

Since Ubuntu contains some restricting components (why?), the Trisquel developers have built an entirely free derivative. Although its community is smaller and its hardware support might be slightly inferior, Trisquel gives anyone full freedom over a complete operating system similar to Ubuntu.

Recomendamos esta distribución si estás comprometido con la libertad en tu computación.
