Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS (with gnome)


Like many others, my go to choice of operating system is also a debian-based one. I started with Red Hat Enterprise Linux but for my home lab I didn't want to deal with any licensing issues that might restrict future security updates.

I was also running LTS CLI for a year but recently I've been running into issues and its been tough to debug them without wasting a ton of time. I felt that GUI with speed up my troubleshooting process. [Manual networking really sucks on 20.04.3 or I'm just bad. (probably the latter)]
