UMESHASNANI,

Welcome to LQ.

Oh to have a Linux distro that supported all hardware like wifi, sound etc!

You need to look at things from the reverse perspective.

What is your hardware (make & model), RAM, CPU etc?

Once we know your hardware we can suggest suitable Linux distros.

The most suggested one is Mint, but you've said in two other threads that you're either using RHEL 6 or Ubuntu 12...BOTH are old. Now you're asking about Fedora? Mint would probably be the best to start with.

What you work in now is immaterial, because you can still look things up using Windows. You can find many, MANY threads about this very issue with a brief search of this site, and on Google.

And as said to you before, without knowing what kind of hardware you have, how do you think we'll be able to suggest what would be 'best' for you??

Hi UMESHASNANI...

With only 2 GB's of memory, you will need something lightweight. My system also has only 2 GB's and have found Lubuntu 14.04 works very well with it. You could also try the newest version, which is 16.04. Both offer long term support.

Regards...

Zorin or Linux Mint was suggested in another thread that you posted.
Why are you posting essentially for the same thing again?

Kindly read the forum rules like TB0ne suggested in a previous post/thread you made.

They're ALL FREE...and if you'd like to know where to download them, feel free to actually look at their websites. You can find them with a brief Google search...as said before, read the "Question Guidelines" link in my posting signature. We are happy to help, but at some point, you need to start looking things up and doing them for yourself.
