Use the "Cinnamon" version.

Not really. We don't know you and don't know what purpose you have in mind for the system which can make a considerable difference.

yeah, Linux distros are kind of taylored for different purposes with different people in mind.
If all you want is an all purpose Operating System easy to use install Linux Mint

If you are planning on doing some networking administration do CentOS, or Kaly Linux for some serious hacking.

If you just want to learn linux then install SlackWare, Debian, or Arch.

Good luck to you.
