looking to jump over Linux and have a few questions

why not Ubuntu

best distros/DEs and why?
>>
Antergos w/ cinnamon... Cuz its arch and The DE is pretty much The best
>>
Debian (because it's the only distro where maintainers seems to know what they are doing)

DE: no DE, just DWM

(tilling ftw)
>>
ubuntu is fjust ine as a first linux
>>
If it's your first time, pick the easiest, I guess that would mean Ubuntu in its different flavors
>>
>>51582405
>Antergos
All you had to do is to recommend a proper distro (like Xubuntu) instead of a total memeware
>>
Linux From Scratch
DE is for subhumans just use command line interface.
Feel free to post feedback (in 10 years)

>best distros/DEs and why?
1) Welcome to /g/
2) Be sure to check out the sticky/wiki
3) There is usually a /general/ dedicated to linux be sure to check it out.
4) There is no best distro. Do some reading on your own. Check out reviews on youtube. Use a liveCD or liveUSB. Asking /g/ which distro is best will lead to nothing more than a useless distro circle-jerk/hate thread.

Good luck.

>why not Ubuntu

People don't like Unity. I haven't used it much, but I don't like it either. Amazon spyware on by default, though I think they've changed that now.

stupid question:
I am installing Debian on a partition, near the end of the installation it asks to install GRUB but warns that if there is another OS this could cause problems. It won't let me install GRUB on the partition I made for Debian, is it safe to just install it wherever the installer is asking to by default?
>>
>>51582969
yeah, it should be fine, doesn't it give a list of other OSs on the disk? if it does and they're there, you're fine.
>>
>>51582372
>>>/g/flt/
Ubuntu is fine. Some people just don't like unity.
Mint Cinnamon is nice.
Also xUbuntu, mint mate, elementaryOS
>>
>>51582405
I second Antergos. I would say use XFCE or Gnome though.
