Find out our top ten distros for the coming year in Linux User & Developer 122

Which distros make our top ten list for 2013 in the latest issue of Linux User, where we also build a media converter and check in on the Linux video game scene.

It’s been another great year for Linux, with the release and maturity of more popular desktop distros like Linux Mint and Mageia, greater access to the cloud, and Android dominating the mobile OS market. We also saw the release of the Raspberry Pi explode in popularity, allowing for Linux based computers to easily get into the hands of kids everywhere.

In Linux User 122, we decided to choose our top ten distros for the coming year. These are the Linux distributions you should be looking out for and using in 2013, whether you’re using it at home, in an office, or for development. 2013 is also the year of Steam on Linux, and we have a big feature on Linux game development in the State of Play.

Linux User & Developer is out now in all good newsagents, and you can also get it on any major digital marketplace via If you want to get the magazine earlier and cheaper, subscribe on the Imagine Shop.
