Archlinux is best, but difficult. It’s what I run. Or at least what I used to run. (Now days I run Fedora Xfce and Sabayon Xfce.)
I didn’t install it with the Arch Wiki. I used YouTube videos. It worked, and I’m inside Arch writing this article. I’ve been using Arch for awhile now. I like it.
I’ve used ’em all. Mint, Antergos, Manjaro, Ubuntu (all the flavors), Zorin, everything else you can read about on DistroWatch.com. I first started before the turn of the century in the late 1990’s.
Eventually, I managed to install Archlinux by watching YouTube videos on my phone, and that’s what I’ve been using for the last year and a half.
The next step would be Linux from Scratch, which I don’t think I’m interested in trying. It definitely should not be tried by someone who is not thoroughly advanced in Linux.
If you don’t know Linux, or don’t like command line interfaces, then the recommended Linux Distro would be – I just hate to say this – Ubuntu or Manjaro.
Just my opinion.
