Hi all, I'm looking to switch one of my desktop systems over to Linux within the next couple weeks and I'm looking for some recommendations in terms of which distribution to install. The hardware I'm using is fairly recent (i.e. less than 5 years old). From my research it looks like Ubuntu and Linux Mint are two of the most popular distributions right now. Ubuntu is based on Debian and Linux Mint is based on Ubuntu LTS - so they are all related. It seems some of the main differences are aesthetic - i.e. whether one likes Ubuntu's Unity desktop environment or Linux Mint's Cinnamon, for instance. The upgrade path on Ubuntu is also a bit smoother than Linux Mint from what I've been reading. Right now I'm leaning to either one of these as I know they'll be supported and updated regularly. However, I'm also open to other suggestions (as there are many distributions out there). What do you guys recommend? Thanks in advance for your help.
