Moss - Welcome to Distrohopper’s Digest, Episode 028, recorded on December 8, 2021. This episode, we are going to do something a little different.  With us this month is Joshua Hawk, and we are looking at our favourite distros we reviewed or looked at this year. We are happy to receive suggestions of distros you’d like us to try.




...wherein we discuss what we did this month…  Josh, would you like to start us off?


Josh - First off I want to thank you guys for having me on your podcast! Considering I am new I will start a little farther back than a month. I got a new laptop in October, it is an Acer Predator Helios 300 - 15.6" 144 Hz IPS - Intel Core i7 11th Gen 11800H (2.30GHz) - NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Laptop GPU - 16 GB DDR4 - 1 TB HDD 512 GB PCIe SSD - Windows 10 Home 64-bit - Gaming Laptop (PH315-54-731M). I know it's a mouthful but trust me it's a great laptop and linux works great on it. I have tried a few distros on it including Ubuntu Gnome, Fedora Gnome, Linux Mint, Manjaro Cinnamon, and Pop!_OS.  MORE


  1. Hi guys.
    I knew that voice sounded familiar. I recall hearing Moss Bliss on the DistroWatch podcast.
    When I started with GNU/Linux over a decade ago, I frequently distro hopped. Then after a few years, I settled with Ubuntu for years, then moved to Linux Mint for years, and finally have been on Debian for over 5 years now.
    Happy computing!

    1. I don't know there ever was a DistroWatch podcast. I was on mintCast for 2.5 years and am planning a return.

    2. Hi Moss.

      Sorry, I was getting you mixed up with someone else. This was the podcast I referred to: 'Distrowatch Weekly Podcast' ( It must have been mintCast where I heard you before.

      Happy New Year!
