For daily desktop use? Debian, without question. But the rise of Docker makes this harder to answer if than it used to be for production machines. For instance, my production Linux servers run centos, but I suspect at least 80% of the containers they run are based on Debian or Ubuntu.

Have you ever used a VM? If so, what did you use it for?
Most people who use computers understand at least the basics of how they work. There's the hardware, that actually does the computing; an operating system, that sits on top and serves as an interface between the computer hardware and the programs run by users, and then the actual applications we use which sit on top of that. Sometimes, though, it's a little more complex than that simple abstraction.

"The availability of open data creates opportunities for all kinds of organisations, government agencies and not-for-profits to come up with new ways of addressing society's problems."
Data has the power to revolutionise and disrupt the way societies are governed. None more so than open data, which is free to access, free to use and can be shared by anyone. It's non-personal and can be used to identify and predict large-scale trends and behaviours. This is as opposed to closed data that is restricted to internal use by an organisation.

Open source is changing the world.
Introduction
Opensource.com is a platform for discussing the ways open source is changing the world. 

Our articles explore how embracing open source principles and practices — like transparency, community, participation, collaboration, meritocracy, rapid prototyping, and sharing — can lead not only to a powerful method of engineering software, but to a whole way of life. An open source way of life.

We strive to share or write stories with you that are inspiring testaments to the wonderful and often surprising innovations a commitment to open source values can generate.

Note: opensource.com is a Red Hat community service, but our stories and authors come from all different fields. Join the open source conversation today!
