    I'm using Arch with gnome ( i know i know, i should be using plasma ) i just like nice animations to much.

    I like it alot since it is completely tailored to how i want and work.

    But if you are just entering the 'leenuux' world it might be a better idea to boot up Ubuntu in a VM. Because shit tends to break more often (more access == more damage that can be done) , and either you fix it or reinstall OS.

    Welcome to devrant! Personally, I really like centos as server os and debian as desktop os.

    I use Xubuntu for my little laptop, and would happily recommend it for most basic tasks. For beginners I think Ubuntu or Linux Mint are also good options, and like @Tvercruysse said, starting with a virtual machine is a good way to experience a full install and get used to the new environment.

    If you're new i'd say go with ubuntu, maybe fire up a vm or install on some old scruffy laptop you have laying around. Linux mint is good too for that familiar windows workflow Cinnamon has :)

    I'm really enjoying arch with cinnamon DE.
    Arch takes a while to set up, but you learn a lot about how linux works.

    Using Linux mint kde on my laptop and elementary os on my desktop!
    If you totally new to the Linux world I suggest to try Linux mint. It's beginner friendly. Then start learning commandline on Linux and understand it's file system. Start Following blogs on Linux world.
