best linux version?

Best sports team? Best religion? Best car?

The best Linux version is the one YOU like and which suits YOUR computer. I can only tell you the one I like and which suits my computer. YOU need to decide for YOURSELF.

Begin by looking here:

Words of wisdom there from arochester.

shivendra4ever, take arochester's advice. Head over to Distrowatch, take a look around and find a distro that looks good to you and try it out. You will probably do that several times.

There is no one best Linux version (usually described as a 'distribution'). If there was, everyone would just use it, and the others would die off.

Best for New User?
Best for MS migrates
Best for Intermediate User? (Experts don't have to Ask)
Best for Media?
Best for Updates? ( Distribution Life Cycle)

Does it come with a Package Manager?
Is the O.S Installer Disk applicable to New Users?
Is it easily configurable to your present Video Card and other hardware?
Will it naively allow a GUI root user account?
How complete are its Software Repositories?
How dependent is it on using the Command Line Interface?

Concur with all of the above

Either try any of eg top 10 at distrowatch, or answer theKbStockpiler's qns ... even then you'll get more than one answer...

I'd add an extra qn: home use, work desktop, work server?
