For someone who has never used Linux before, which distro is easiest to learn?
You must be logged in to ask, answer or follow a question.
Someone that is moving to Linux from Windows might also like Zorin OS, which has a UI that is very close to Windows 7. I would probably go with either Ubuntu or Mint though - if I wanted a Windows interface, I would stick with Windows.
The best Linux distro and most user friendly is Ubuntu. Ubuntu is so simple that even a newcomer to computers could get a handle on it in a very short time.
