I hope neither of those. They should get one with an actual company behind it. There’s Suse Linux which is based in Germany and would probably make a good fit.

As much as I love Mint on my devices, I agree with this sentiment. Suse would certainly be cool.

Yeah I’d love them to use Mint or Debian or Arch or Fedora or whatever, but I also think it’s important for this project to succeed. And you need good support for success.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
