If you like any of them, you can try it out from a live bootable USB drive without installation.

My Preferred OS 🔗

I prefer Ubuntu as my operating system of choice. Here is some information which may affect my preference. I am a web developer and Android app developer. I like free and open source software. I tried Mac OS on my 15" macbook pro mid 2015 edition, Windows 7 on HP 250 laptop, Windows 10, Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Pop!_OS, Elementary OS, Manjaro, Parrot OS, Kali Linux and Clear Linux OS.

I use Ubuntu, Mac OS, Debian daily in my software development.
