Last night I was browsing through my site states, and saw a link to a subreddit about distrohopping. I had no idea such a reddit existed, but I was delighted to find out that it did. One of Eye On Linux’s older columns was even listed in the top articles tab.
Currently, the distrohopping reddit has 515 readers. It might be a good idea to click the subscribe link, and see if we can help get that number up a bit. There’s some great threads to read there, and it’s always nice to connect with fellow distrohoppers.
The main Linux reddit has more than 100,000 readers, so let’s see if we can give it a run for its money. Well, okay maybe that’s biting off more than we can chew. But I hope this article helps more people find the distrohopping subreddit.
Here’s a screenshot of what the distrohopping reddit looks like. Of course I cut off the screenshot right above the point where the Eye On Linux column was showing in the top articles list. Doh! But here’s a link to the thread and to the original article here on EOL (The Dark Side of Distrohopping).
I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on this subreddit. I really like reading about what linux distros people are using regularly, or just experimenting with on their computers. There’s always something new to learn, and always another distro to check out.
Here’s a list of some additional Linux reddits that you might find interesting.
- Open Source / Free Software
- The Stallman Subreddit
- HURD / Linux-libre
- Free Culture
- Libre Design
