    Ubuntu or mint are probably the best for beginners.

    Ubuntu and debian for begginers are great

    Arch is the way. Sure it will be hard at start but the experience you get is just worth every minute.
    To get that experience in Ubuntu it would take you 3x more.

    Depends what you need from linux

    ---general use / getting feet wet

    mint

    xubuntu (never had regular ubuntu work well for me, though it's been a while)

    (debian, redhat/centos, suse are all fine too. i dont see as many people who use those)

    ---learning configuration, services, init, boot loaders

    arch linux (latest everything. will most likely break on you and piss you off at some point - but has good documentation/wiki)

    slackware (more stable, less packages and documentation)

    ---coding, kernel, and really understanding linux

    gentoo (compiles everything, you can customize everything, you may miss a USE flag, or kernel driver, or come across and update that breaks a dependency and not know wtf)

    (lfs) linux from scratch (haven't used it, think it's like gentoo but more manual?)

    I hear a lot of people say Ubuntu, but I gotta say KDE Neon. It's Ubuntu-based but it comes with KDE, which imo is a better de because of it's customization and (relatively) light weight. It works amazingly well on my >5 year old laptop. If you want to get a little dirty, but not too much, I would also recommend installing OpenSUSE with KDE or another de.

    Try Ubuntu ,Elementary OS or Mint.

    They will help you to adopt into Linux ..

    Have Good Luck ! in to world of Open Source

    Go with Ubuntu without a doubt. The latest one now comes with Gnome Desktop. Previous versions used Unity Desktop. This will give you solid entry for learning the command line. Once you get the terminology and feel comfortable, then make your leap to any other distro. Kubuntu is also another nice option though it is a bit more heavy because KDE is huge. But KDE is so customizable that you can modify every aspect of it.

    Last version of Ubuntu is awesome. Plus there's a huge community, I don't struggle to find help everytime I'm stuck with terminal, system setting and such

    @themissingbrace Gnome is heavier than KDE

    @fuck2code I hated KDE for ages. Then KDE Plasma came out. People's told me to try it, refused every time.

    "fuck it, why the hell not?" - after a while. Tried it once: 😍

    @fuck2code Although I love the keyboard, I'm an eye candy whore. I really like beautiful themes :)

    Most of my desktops are filled with terminals though ;P
