Ubuntu

gentoo

arch

Gentoo, LFS or Arch if you're lazy and useless.
>>
Red Hat
>>
Ubuntu or mint if you dont want to be dissapointed at start then switch to arch, debian, gentoo or whatewa
>>
Debian
>>
>>51425002
Depends on what you want out of linux
>>
>>51425085
just something to throw on my laptop to watch youtube, and browse 4chan
>>
>>51425085
this

ubuntu, suse, fedora and debian-stable are good and stable.

elementary OS is a bit newer but interesting. kind of an OSX ripoff tho.

wouldnt suggest arch, gentoo or similar unless there's a reason you need it.
>>
>>51425104
gentoo
>>
>>51425104
good hardware or old hardware?

if good -> ubuntu unity
if old -> lubuntu (it's light on resources)
>>
>>51425104
templeos
>>
>>51425126
pretty shitty laptop, i3 330m and 4gb ram
>>
>>51425002
Gentoo
>>
>>51425136
gentoo
>>
OK being honest here I'd say Arch. It's gonna be a pain in the ass in the beginning but you're going to learn a lot in the process getting it setup. If you don't have time to invest initially I'd say ubuntu or Linux mint
>>
In all seriousness, all of the good Linux distributions are probably not the best if it's your first time using something other than Linux. I fucking hate everything about ubuntu but it's simply the best if you're a n00b. Use a spin though fuck unity.
>>
OP there is only misery and broken shit on the other side.
But you will see for yourself I guess
>>
>>51425002
Opensuse
>>
>>51425108
What is the difference between debain and gentoo?
>>
>>51425002
mint, korora project, elementary os, opensuse,
>>
>>51425023

Ubuntu is still best for beginners.
>>
is there a stripped down version of ubuntu?

i hate how it comes with a thousand stupid apps per default

i tried removing the (i think) the scanner app and it literally wrecked the entire system because it was part of some core functionality package

so stupid

> proceeds to list half-decent specs

I think low-speed C2D is about when you'd start looking for something lighter than Unity.

Seriously, just go with Ubuntu.
>>
>>51425002
Ubuntu In my opinion
>>
>>51426019
Debian netinstall. Install the shit you actually want.
>>
>>51426055
is everyone on /g/ poorfags? back on /b/ everyone would say what a shit tier laptop that is. lol but seriously, is ubuntu the best distro for newbies? everyone on this thread is saying it, or gentoo
>>
>>51426129
its >>51425575
you spaz op just wants too browse youtube and shit post
>>
>>51426140
thats about right, btw >>51426140 is op, and so is this.
>>
>>51426157
fucking wrong anon >>51426129 is me
>>
>>51425002
Ubuntu Mate
>>
>>51425002
Debian testing or Manjaro.
>>
>>51426019

lubuntu

running it right now, does a pretty good balance between the 10 billion packages of ubuntu and the "here's your command line" of arch
>>
>>51426129
> Gentoo is also easy
You've been wew'd, lad. Ubuntu is the way to go for 90% of people.
