    I have made a Sticky of this because the 2 links make for a seriously good read :)

    Please read them before asking questions in this Forum, you may find the answers there.

    Note that with the first link, it is about 4 years old, and likewise a link within it - https://www.linux.com/learn/tutorials/783109-how-to-choose-the-best-linux-desktop-for-you

    BUT - the principles are sound, and the latest popular Linux are still at distrowatch.com (Page Hit Ranking)

    If references to DEs (Desktop Environments) confuses you, see this link here

    Kudos to Member @poorguy for presenting this Thread :p
