Best Linux Distributions for New Users   

Ah, the age-old that holds far more importance than simply pointing out which Linux distribution is a fan-favorite. Why is that?

Let me set the stage: You have a user one who has, most likely, spent the majority of their time in front of either a Windows or Mac machine and they've come to you for an alternative. You want to point them in a direction that will bring about the least amount of hiccups along the way and highlight the power and flexibility of Linux.

But, remember, the single most important aspect is that they must get it, out of the box.

That's why we often take the time to point out which distributions are best designed for new users -- because bringing new users into the mix is the best way to spread the word and grow the base.

With that said, what are the best distributions for new users?

Latest beta also allows more Home users to defer forced updates with metered connection trick

Microsoft today delivered a new Windows 10 build that includes changes designed to address long-standing complaints about the operating system's update practices.

Analysis of the top 10 linux distributions of 2016   

The list is the top 10 distributions as found on Distrowatch.

The point of this guide is to look at each of the top 10 distributions and to highlight how suitable the distribution is for the everyday Linux user.

There is a set criteria I use to determine how suitable a Linux distro is for the average person which is as follows:

Must be easy to install
Must have an intuitive desktop environment
Must be easy to use
Must have a standard and fairly complete set of applications installed
Must have a decent package manager for installing other applications
Must be ready to use straight away
The list is ordered in the same way they are on Distrowatch.

With that said, let's get to the list!
