I've been using Windows as my main OS since I sat on an PC with win 95. Now I think is time to finally change to Linux!
The main reason I didn't change sooner was because the .NET dev env, but now there's Mono.
So, I really would like some suggestion about what distro and desktop interface to use.
What do I use PCs for:
- Web Dev (.NET, PHP)
- Android Dev
- DataBase Managing (MySQL & SQL Server)
- Little Bit of Design(Photo edit, vectors and very little movie editing)
- CS GO (Steam Game)
- Security Tests (With Kali)
- Basic Stuff (Web,Docs,Music,Movie,Pics...)
I've been playing with distros on virtual boxes and pen drivers for a while, including Ubuntu, Debian, BackTrack, Kali, SlackWare and Mint.
I don't like dual boot too much, so the most important question, do you guys think I would be OK with Linux as my main OS using virtual box or wine for a few things(like SQL Server Management Studio) ?
If yes, what distro and desktop do you recommend?
Any other tips, remarks or suggestions are welcome.
Oh, also would like to confirm somehting... If I choose Debian, can I get any functionallity on Kali just by installing the packages needed, right?
