    If you want to make your "own" Linux, arch Linux is the way to go. If not, you can put your hands on Ubuntu (if you like the UI) or maybe gnome which is also used a lot. I personally like the UI of Ubuntu but I would probably (for the next system) try out arch just for the sake of fun.

    Don't forget kf5 (KDE plasma 5),its also coming along nicely.
    If KDE is your preference, then take a look at OpenSuSE Leap :)

    If you're 100% new to linux, go for ubuntu or something similar.

    Arch is awesome, I use it, but its 108x more of a pain in the ass to setup/operate. If you don't know the basics(processes, users, perms, services, bash, etc, etc) it will overwhelm you and you'll be like "fuck this im booting back into windows" and you wont try it again for another year+.

    Linux is what you make it. If windows is a tricycle, then ubuntu is a bike with training wheels---you can take them off when you're ready.

    @lotd I've had nothing but buggy bs from plasma :( I've settled on xfce + compiz (for anything flashy I might want)

    @rozzzly that's unfortunate lol, I haven't had much of any trouble with plasma 5.. :D

    Ironically xfce4 on Arch have given me some major headache, kept crashing, filemanager (thunar) refused to launch if I had some of my nfs shares attached in fstab,web browser (Google Chrome stable) did some funky stuff with the top panel, like it was competing for the space...

    Ultimately I replaced xfce4 with i3 + dolphin filemanager... :)
