Which Linux flavors are most successful so far?

Hi all,

I've been running Cumulus 1 for 10 years now and about every two years the machine I have bites the dust. I ressurect an old machine/laptop and re-install everything. This time I have an old Inspiron 6400, which ironically, I had Windows 10 64-bit running GREAT the past year but a recent power failure hosed it up and I can't reinstall it no matter how hard I try. I'm finally saying screw it and going to just put linux on there now that Cumulus MX is graciously being developed!

So thats the back story... LOL

That being said, I'd like to get some opinions on which Linux flavors have been most successful so far with Cumulus and which ones are being tested on. Typically I'll do an Ubuntu install but it doesn't matter to me. I'll just use Unetbootin and off we go!

Thanks for the input all.

I'm running Debian Jessie here on an Intel NUC. Before I used CumulusMX, I was running Weewx on the same Box. Debian has been really stable.

Nice. Ok I went with Mint Linux and so far it seems to be working really well. Not much to it so I would expect it's pretty stable across the board. Way nicer than dealing with all the Windows crap.
