Trying Debian and finally Ubuntu for desktop

09.Dec.2016 — Julio

After trying these OS's for desktop trying BSD in 2015

I work with a Intel NUC D54250WYK in my job. It had Linux Mint 17, and I was tired of having to update applications I need like Libreoffice, mutt, thunderbird, and so on. Also I prefer now a distribution more update not LTS.

I dismissed the Linux Mint 18 option because I want a main distribution. I have servers working with Debian and Ubuntu so I tried these two.

My premises are:

  • I have to get all configured in less than 3 hours. It's the work desktop !!
  • I have to get all applications that I need to work.
  • my /home is on a separate partition, so no extra work for restoring backups.
  • beautiful fonts please.
  • I work with i3wm. Yes, I'm used to work with keyboard more than mouse.
