This is the official website of DistroTube, a YouTube channel created by Derek Taylor (DT) that focuses on Linux tutorials, installations, reviews and news. Some of our areas of focus include tiling window managers, the command line, vim and emacs.
Exploring the Linux landscape with a passion for knowledge.
DistroTube (DT) is a YouTube channel started by me, Derek Taylor (also DT), in October 2017, where I initially focused on Linux distribution installations and reviews. As the channel grows and I mature in my role as a content creator, I am trying to spend more time on other Linux-related topics as well, including: app reviews, terminal and command line tutorials, desktop environment and window manager tutorials, Linux news and the occasional live stream event.
