... is a bit like "How long is a piece of string?". It is a case of looking at a few, perhaps many, and seeing what takes your fancy.Which is the best linux type that I can start from that is not complex for a windows user?
Hi @Olly, and welcome! Not sure what you mean by "shortcuts" in Windows. Many "keyboard shortcuts," like CNTL-C to copy, and CNTL-V to paste, are also available in Linux.... in fact, many of those are the same. If you mean "desktop shortcuts," (to launch a program or open a file) then Linux has those too.... called by a few different names: symbolic links, symlinks, or soft links.Hello fam. I am really interested in joining the linux family. I have windows 10 which I enjoy the wide variety of shortcuts it has. Which is the best linux type that I can start from that is not complex for a windows user?
Well said, mate!Hi Olly, As Wiz has said Distrowatch is a great place to look as us It's Foss and How to Geek Linux - most other places will only confuse you to be honest. The other way of doing it is for you to do a a live version of the ones you like so you can try them and see what see suits you. It really is a matter of what suits you. I did this and went for Mint in the end as it suits you. On here you'll find links to all the distros - just don't rush it as you've come this far
Thanks it is confusing and the more you look the harder it becomes, this is where this forum is great for people - once you have it the one you like -that forum is okay, but although through health I've not been back here for a while this is IMHO perhaps the best forum of the lotWell said, mate!
Thanks Wizard - happy 2018 to youEloquently put, "grumpy old man retired" and we hope the health is back on track.
@Olly - what Ptahhotep has said, I am right behind.
The Live scenario is also a perfect opportunity to test your devices and peripherals, eg WiFi, Printers, Sound, Video &c.
It they work under Live, they should work once installed.
