Hey there ndu ndu (cool and original name by the way
Okay, as stated in the thread, dont go for the look-alikes.
Let's go for a run-down:
- easy on the "new guy" and very complete.
- in case you'd want to try that on a lighter/older system...
- the "older brother" of the set, super complete though perhaps a bit less on the stuffing, to my humble taste...
These are the "install-once-use-forever
" type, or: rolling releases
- good, complete, pretty stable, but you'll have to reinstall it every year or so as it is not a rolling release. Educational, but time consuming.
On the other hand, there is a questionaire
that gives the answers according to what you need...
And, personally, at the end of the day - it's all academic. The best distro for you is the one you're okay with!
That's how close and personal Linux can get!
