The Top Ten
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.
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
Rock solid stable. Don't let the comments about other Linux distributions confuse you. You can add anything they have to this. If you want, say, the Kali hacking tools, you can download them. Likewise, customize the desktop, etc. don't run this on an old throwaway computer. It deserves 32 GB RAM and a 1TB solid state drive. I run Microsoft SQL Server, MYSQL, and a dozen programming languages. This is Linux for a professional developer. Do yourself a favor and install the server version.V 39 Comments Visit Website9
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's the most stable and reliable Linux distribution I've ever used, very user friendly, the best replacement for Windows, it has long term support for 5 years and best of all it's free!
Linux Mint is the fastest,the easiest,the most familiar and the best linux ditro everV 28 Comments Visit Website9
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.

Strict adherence to the free software philosophy
Available in CD featuring many popular desktop environments - shreyastare

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

Clean and largely bug-free

Best available system in India, especially designed for Indian users.
It is very stable. Supported by CDAC.
It supports many Indian Languages.
Based on Debian.. GNome environment. Has BOSSMOOL.
India Runs on BOSS. ATMs are being upgraded to use BOSS from Windows XP.
TamilNadu government is using BOSS on all its systems.
It's like having a Mac for free. Super elegant design. A joy to use. It's one of the only OS's that didn't seem like it was fighting me. Comes with all the basic apps and the Ubuntu app store so you will always have plenty of good, safe software.
