THIS IS MY FIRST LIST ON THIS SITE. LINUX OS HAS VARIOUS DISTRIBUTIONS BECAUSE IT'S FREEWARE. THIS IS MY TOP TEN LINUX BASED OPERATING SYSTEMS, PLEASE ADD YOUR VOTES AND COMMENTS TO IMPROVE MY LIST. THIS LIST BASED ON ROBUSTNESS, SIMPLICITY, PERFORMANCE, UI AND MANY OTHER IMPORTANT FEATURES!

The Top TenXW

1Ubuntu

For a beginner, this is the absolute best. You want linux? Everything is built for this. Stable as a rock, while mint should be better, I've had more technical difficulties with it than on ubuntu.

Both official and user contributed.
User-friendly
Wealth of documentation
Fixed release cycle and support period. - shreyastare

It is a super OS to use especially if you like the windows OS very easy to use IE: User friendly

It is the best

2Linux Mint

It's mind blowing and better than ubuntu

Linux Mint Cinnamon is the best operating system and it is the best replacement os for windows. Looks simple and neat good looking. Classic style operating system. Thanks to Mint team.

It is solid and so well put together and integrated. Personally I prefer the MATE environment over the others. It just plain works well.

I use linux mint 17.3 on one hard drive and windows 10 pro on the second hard drive on an older dell linux mint leave windows 10 dead for speed

3Fedora

Fedora is up to date with it's repository not like Mint and a few other os out there. It seems to be very user friendly and since I installed this at our local Contact Crisis line we have had NO COMPUTER issues, which to me is a huge improvement over the other systems I had them use.

Fedora is best at development process which is based on Linux and also it was updated with its repository. The below my friends already given the importance of Fedora but I use to say one thing, the main thing is that it was very helpful to the freshers who even don't about the Linux. Easy to learn and easy know about the environment of the Linux based projects.

Fedora is the most stable os but its necessary have a knowledge of command line. This is not a os for new people in linux

Fedora is very user friendly OS.

5Debian

Remarkable quality control
Includes 25, 113 software packages
Supports more processor architecture - shreyastare

Rock-solid but powerful. Easily the best operating system once you learn how to use it.

Too stable, Ubuntu is based on Debian.

I love debian

The Contenders

11Slackware Linux

Slackware is the Oldest Linux Distribution. Beating Debian by 8 months. Pat Volkerdink is the man behind Slackware. Pat has followed the Linux Standards in delivering his distribution. The best part of Slackware is you install it once then simply update the packages from there staying current without having to upgrade. Slackware is the best Distribution for a technical tretus on Linux. Great documentation on all aspects of kernel shell and applications. Slackware will require your full attention, ability to read and understand in installation and configuration. It is nor nor will it ever be a simple replacement to Windows like Ubuntu. If you learn Slackware you learn Linux.

The Linux for slackers, everything's already loaded in, installation is a breeze, only issue I've had was figuring out how to enable wifi internet, but even that ended up being easy. Doesn't have the eye candy of Ubuntu or Mint, or the documentation arch has, or the massive software repository debian has... Well, it's basic, but basic is always the right option. "Bob" approved. - airbb

Strong adherence to UNIX principles
Clean and largely bug-free
Considered highly stable - shreyastare
