    Default Which Linux?

    I want to try the Linux OS, but I don't know which one, I already decide to go with Linux Mint but I'm not sure about the version (Cinnamon, Mate, Kde or Xfce). Could you guys suggest me which one?
    Thx.
    PS. I've already downloaded the Mate and Cinnamon x64 versions.

    Cinnamon will be the most "familiar" coming from a Windows environment, but MATE isn't too far off. KDE development has somewhat stalled over the last few years, and it feels dated. XFCE is a lightweight build for low powered machines.

    So, the cinnamon will be the best choice right? I also read that Mate, as you said, is very similar to Cinnamon, but has the better hardware support (most complete).

    I hadn't seen anything about MATE having better hardware support, interesting. I need to throw another SSD in my build and start playing with them a bit more. My usage of MATE was pretty limited.

    Quoted text from Introduction to Linux Mint (page 6 Edition section): "If you don't know which edition to use, choose the MATE Edition. It's not as popular as the Cinnamon Edition but it is compatible with a wider variety of hardware specifications."
    Source: https://www.linuxmint.com/documentat...glish_17.3.pdf
    Strange, almost the same message is written on its download page but this time for Cinnamon:"Choose your favorite edition below. If you're not sure which one is right for you, "Cinnamon 64-bit edition" is the most popular."
    Source: https://www.linuxmint.com/download.php
    The difference is if you want most popular or more compatible. I'm confused right now.

    Default Re: Which Linux?

    I use Linux Mint 17.3, and it *just works*. As far as the difference between Cinnamon and Mate, it really comes down to a matter of personal preference. One is based on Gnome 2, the other on Gnome 3. Both are in active development. I use Cinnamon.

    I've not had Mint fail to identify ANY hardware I've put in the machine. In fact, hardware support on Linux in general is fantastic, and Debian based distros seem to be leading the charge with new hardware support.

    It's worth noting that Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon & Mate are due out in a few weeks. They're based on the new Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

    The biggest reason to select Debian/Ubuntu/Mint distros is the EXTREMELY wide range of readily available help. Debian based distros like Ubuntu and Arch in particular (and all their downstream distros) have fantastic support forums, and when you run a web search to find a solution to a Linux problem, these two distro's help forums frequently pop up the results. Since Ubuntu, Arch & Mint are all ultimately based on Debian, _typically_ a procedure that works to solve a problem in Ubuntu or Arch will work on Linux Mint. This is particularly helpful if you are a Linux Neophyte (like me). It looks like Zorin is an Ubuntu derivative like Mint, so Neil's choice is likely a good one as well. (Side note: Wow, Zorin looks pretty!).

    If I were recommending based on my own experiences, I'd push:

    1. Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon OR MATE.

    2. Ubuntu 16.04 (Probably MATE, I absolutely abhor Unity).

    3. Elementary OS (Very clean, Mac looking OS, pretty, easy and stable) / Zorin OS. After reading the Link Neil sent, Zorin and Elementary are very very similar. Good starting points for new Linux peeps! Both appear to be designed to give you a U/I that helps wean you from Windows.

    4. Debian -- Mostly because it's the Mama of all the above...very stable, would be good for a server (as would Ubuntu Server).

    5. Arch -- If I really wanted to punish myself and learn the most about Linux!

    Just my .02

    Yeah, I've not heard of that either. I suppose MATE could have better support for some things, but I can't imagine why the GUI would really affect hardware support much. I started with Cinnamon, and have used the xfce version on a few NUC like machines (my Wife's Web and E-mail machine is one of those tiny NUC like MSI Boxes), and it truly doesn't seem much different than Cinnamon except it lands on the desktop pretty much as soon as your finger leaves the "on" switch. That's likely because it takes a lot longer to enumerate and setup hardware on my desktop! I've never really bothered with MATE though.

    Anything with a Debian Base and an Openbox interface is veeeery User friendly. I recommend Crunchbang Linux because literally any computer ever made can utilize it and it's very easy to use, and uses virtually no space and no resources.

    Semi-Off-Topic as Smiki was asking specifically about cinnamon/Mate...

    BUT, anybody looking forward to hammering on Linux Mint 18?

    Geeky I know, but I'm really looking forward to moving to the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on my server, and LM18 is based on that. Kinda interested in some of the new underhood changes too. I'm really interested in pushing my media server to 16.04 because of native ZFS support. (Finally).

    Anyone else?

    OK, guys, thank you all for your opinion and suggestions, after almost a week of installing and trying the Mint Cinnamon, and destroying whole content (installed games), accidentally of my SSD (hopefully had the backup ), I've decided that I'm not a Linux man, and I'm gonna stick with W.
    Thanks again for all your help.

    Always look beyond the limits...

    Sorry to hear that Smiki.

    Multi-boot eh?

    No worries, it's not for everybody. And the first time is always the worst. I tried Linux a number of times before I ever really pulled the trigger and actually switched to it. If you really want to play with it, and not risk your computer, I'd pick up a NUC or maybe even a pi-3 just to play with it an learn. NUC's or similar PC's are great for that sort of stuff, and relatively inexpensive.

    Perhaps in the future. I've turned the corner the other way, and absolutely loathe the W these days.

    Scott
