Linux Like many OSNews readers, I use Ubuntu. I also use several less popular distros. What is it like to use these lesser-known distros compared to the dominant systems? How does running, say, VectorLinux or Puppy or PC-BSD, differ from using Ubuntu or Fedora? This article offers a few ideas. Obviously, it broadly generalizes about distros for the purpose of discussion.

PC-BSD is an OS. Linuces with BSD bits hung on are still distros.


However, PC-BSD is a FreeBSD "distro" which does not use Linux kernel at all.
