Lightbulb How about you connect to internet

Before going to choose, either you have connect to internet always else u will be rarely connect to internet.bcz when u use ubuntu only the basic utilities will be available on cd or dvd ,other things should be downloaded
online.almost of the basic things are same in all linux .

I'd go with Ubuntu, it's probably the easiest distro for newbies to use

Ubuntu is a good bet.
However, I started with debian and went to slackware.
Ubuntu is based on Debian but seems to be more common. However, my computer a dell inspiron 5150 kept freezing. I figured if I was going to do anything important with linux, I better have a more stable distro.

I therefore went with slackware. I heard that it was the most stable or the most basic of the distros. I wanted to learn as much as possible about linux and heard nothing but positive about slackware so I went with that one.

Mine is best---MINE is best----(Here we go again....)

The "getting started" link below might help---basically start with anything in the top ten on the Distrowatch "hit list"
