Recommended Linux OS for a beginner.
Hello, I am a first time posters on these forms and I am seeking some advice.
I know this is probably a an extremely over asked question but what would you recommend for my first Linux OS.
Here is my situation/plan...
I play on purchasing a notebook for my first year of college where I am taking Computer IT/Networking. I also plan on using the notebook for a home entertainment system via HDMI.
Only using Linux once (DSL) in my grade 11 programming class I'm unsure of what to use for my current situation. The programming teacher at my school has showed off and recommended Slackware. I know next to nothing when it comes to slackware and would like some advice.
