Many Linux distributions are intended for home users.

This is a holding question for alternates dealing with long-obsolete Linux distributions, such as Red Hat Linux 9. Please do not split the alternates out. There is no reason to use these distributions; they no longer receive any security updates, may not run on modern hardware, and many modern Linux distributions are free.

Opinions are varied on what are the most popular Linux distributions. Some of the Linux distributions that are recently receiving the most attention are Debian, Fedora, Ubuntu, Mageia, and Mint Linux.
