Distro for CS Student who also is studying Linux


Hi All,

So I am looking at a linux distro that is useful for python and java programming (Good IDE support etc) but I can also learn from as on the back end I study Linux for sysadmin stuff.

I am a part time student and I am an IT Engineer so figuring things out is nothing difficult for me, I have also being using Linux for around 3 years on and off.

I have installed Arch Linux in my time with varying degrees of success but never moved onto anything like Gentoo and LFS due to not having that much time and I don't particually want to leave my laptop running a VM just for testing as I hear it can take a long time to build.


What suggestions would you have?
