Best Linux Distribution

Ubuntu

This year's Best Linux Distribution is a testament to choice. Although it's not a surprise that Ubuntu is in the top spot, it's fun to see how close those top spots are to each other. Just a handful of percentage points separates a dozen or so distributions, and the most popular option only has 16% of the total votes! When it comes to their distros, Linux users love choice.
