I can't choose which distro is best for me. I've downloaded before Fedora, CentOS, Open Mandriva, Mageia, PCLinuxOS, OpenSuse, Manjaro and Arch. I'm using ubuntu now. But I wanna try new distributions. Which are you suggesting me ?

I wanna play games (minecraft, call of chulthu, fear etc. etc.), Compiling HTML files and learning programming languages. I wanna use user friendly linux.

The only thing I can recommend you is to try all of them. Experience is the best way to find what fits you. Though Wine is the same everywhere.

Personally, I prefer Ubuntu. Just dabble a little with each distro and see what you like.

I use elementary OS, have you tried it already?
I've wrote this message with elementary os :) I wanna try new things. OpenMandriva is very easy to use. I've tried. But some distros makes crash on multibootusb :) My computer is very old and it crashes on VirtualBox :D
I wanna try all of them. But I am not want to try these one of one. CD and DVD is really slow. When I connect my usb it's faster than my own system :D

It can get really good when you configure it right. But sometimes you have to use old software versions, because it runs based in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS...

I run Ubuntu. I recently became tired of Unity - no problem, it just does not work for the way I think - so I installed a Cinnamon nightly to use on Ubuntu. I essentially have Mint now on my development machine, but without the long and dangerous process of backup, re-install, restore, and re-building apps from source (there are a few I need that do not have packages available).

Nothing flashy or "ooh! wow!" about Cinnamon - it just works. I like categorized menus - they help me. I'm one of those people who cannot remember application names. I can't tell you how many times I would go into the Unity menu and sit there thinking "what was that called, what was that called, what was that called...". Unity did not have an easy way to get to categorized menus, and when you do, you often have to scroll through a short horizontal list. That, and Unity would often show me the "working wheel" for about 5+ seconds when I clicked for the menus.

Cinnamon shows the categories right there. That helps me a lot. I guess if I was building from new. I would either go Ubuntu for fast updates and support, or Mint with Cinnamon for the way I work.
