    Nah, I strongly disagree with the order in which you’ve put the distributions, Debian and Fedora should be among the ones in the first main list, and Kali isn’t pretty known compared to others (Debian, Fedora, Mint, Ubuntu), same for RedHat.
    At least follow distrowatch.com’s ranking.

    • I didn’t put them in order but i do agree with you actually Lunix Mint, Ubuntu and even Kali Lunix are based on Debian so Debian is in the top of list. As for RedHat it’s a well known distribution ! like i said it’s mostly used by experts (in professional level)
      There are many other distributions i should have added in this post like Arch Linux or OpenSuse… and they may be better than Fedora and Debian (The original version not a distribution based on Debian like Ubuntu) because Fedora and Debian are mostly used for server side

        1)Archlinux and OpenSuse are not better than Debian (or even Fedora).

        2)Debian’s repositories are the largest, yet it provides well-tested software/packages, and it’s used in servers as well as personal computers/laptops, so they are not “mostly” used in servers, and again, that makes it better than Opensuse/Archlinux, although i’m not claiming that it’s better than Opensuse/Archlinux, same thing with Fedora, though I believe that it’s repositories application base doesn’t exceed Debian’s.

        3)Redhat is quite a commercial distro, and most end-users tend to use Fedora, which is the community version of the RHEL, so talking about it in an article that introduces novices to GNU/Linux is quite off topic

        • I respect your point of view 🙂
