Hi there webmasters, this is not one of those X vs Z distro threads. It's basically two simple questions. The other thread on how much time you keep your computer on keeps me thinking.
What linux flavor are you using? (extended periods)
How's the stability? recommendations?
I've been using Linux for quite sometime, more and more everyday until I finally moved 100% to linux. Used Lubuntu (which I love) and then moved to Xubuntu (I also like it a lot). I left Lubuntu because of many bugs trying to do something small and find lots of threads with the same problem. Xubuntu works great but it has bugs too (12,04) I will focus on this one right now.
First I'm not trying to diagnose what's the problem causing Xubuntu to freeze, there are far too many variables, diff programs installed, etc. I already searched how to diagnose this but I don't think it's worth investing time anymore, there is no clue or pattern, it just happens, sometimes few times, others a lot.
Second, I know Debian has been my constant finding as a big recommendation on stability. I'm still thinking about it.
It's about using full Linux for office, design, writing, coding, and specially browsing the web. So the question goes for this specifically. There are lots of threads about "stability" and reviews from eager users but hey, installing and testing to write a post it's way different than using the system on a daily basis. Xubuntu 12.04 showed a few times the crash report and gave me clues, but now even that the service is on, the pc just freezes.
If you want a simple approach just share how's your experience with diff distros working hours and hours on it, I will appreciate your testimonial.
Thanks in advance.
