With those requirements any distribution will do, Ubuntu or Mint is what I would normally recommend and in this case the one mentioned by @CrazedNerd should be fine as well since it's basically Ubuntu.

Yeah thats probably true, the requirements for doing podcasts are pretty low, its up to the OP overall to make their own decisions about software requirements and recording needs.

As a podcaster and content creator, you'll want a Linux distribution that is both user-friendly and versatile. Here are a few options that might suit your needs:

  1. Ubuntu Studio: This is a specialized version of Ubuntu Linux that comes with a suite of multimedia production tools pre-installed, including audio and video editing software. It's designed specifically for content creators and media professionals, so it's a great choice if you want an out-of-the-box solution.
  2. Fedora: Fedora is a popular Linux distribution that's known for being stable and reliable. It also has a large community of users and developers, which means that there are plenty of resources available if you run into any issues.
  3. Manjaro: If you're looking for a Linux distribution that's easy to use but still powerful, Manjaro is a great option. It's based on Arch Linux, which is known for its speed and flexibility, but it's also designed to be user-friendly and accessible to new users.
  4. Debian: Debian is a stable and reliable Linux distribution that's popular with developers and power users. It's not as user-friendly as some of the other options on this list, but it's a great choice if you're comfortable with the command line and want a highly customizable system.
Ultimately, the best Linux distribution for you will depend on your specific needs and preferences. You may want to try out a few different options before settling on one that works best for you.

One of the main developers behind Ubuntu Studio is also involved with Fedora.


Whilst I speak with Erich somewhat regularly, it's mostly related to Ubuntu (Ubuntu Studio & Lubuntu both use the same installer `calamares` & more), but I know nothing about music/video creation, but do know of his work over with the Fedora folks. Erich is mostly audio (as I understand it) which from what I saw is the purpose of Fedora Jam, but I'm well out of my depths in this area sorry.

Also FYI: Don't forget to consider everything; eg. Fedora has a six month cycle like Ubuntu's non-LTS, but has no LTS equivalent... so using a Fedora release will mean you'll need to release-upgrade at least once every 12-13 months... which is far shorter than the Ubuntu LTS cycle...

Linus himself uses it.

Well, technically CentOS, Redhat, Alma and Rocky are Fedora LTS. :)

I guess Linus is into the whole "workspace" feature of fedora.

So really all distros would work.
In my experience, yes, even though the installation and image writing process might throw some un-expected problems at you. I recommend using balena etcher to install your OS because it has worked the best for me:

I think of this system as a GNU/Linux system ! Thus to me, all GNU/Linux systems will work, some just make it a little easier out of the box due to slightly different choices made by those putting it together (ie. different aims), plus most importantly (in my view) the timing of when they grabbed their packages from their respective upstreams (here they all have the same final upstream - thus why're they all the same to me).

FYI: I'm replying here on my Ubuntu lunar system, technically I'm using LXQt thus it's Lubuntu, but it's still a Ubuntu GNU/Linux system (I just happened to login as I do most days using the Lubuntu session...). My prior rely (from the time it was made) would have also been made on a GNU/Linux system, but Debian testing/sid instead.

(and if wondering why I mentioned time, different boxes in different rooms, but both have my setup; the Ubuntu box is my primary system, the other Debian a backup.. I also have OpenSuSE (tumbleweed) & Fedora here too but those exist mostly for comparisons [QA testing] with regards my Ubuntu work... my setup works on all ~equally but Ubuntu/Debian are my favorites).
