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

2Linux Mint

Superb collection of “minty” tools which is developed in-house.
Has user-friendly enhancements.
Inclusion of multimedia codecs.
Open to all user suggestions. - shreyastare

It's mind blowing and better than ubuntu

Beautiful and clean without being over the top or gawdy.

I think because of community product, Linux Mint is the best linux based OS to ensure my freedom.

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.

Superb security features
Many supported packages
Strict adherence to the free software philosophy
Highly innovative
Available in CD featuring many popular desktop environments - shreyastare

8Slackware 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.

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

Fast, Stable, Secure, Bug-free, Very Unix-like, Original Linux
