    Welcome to the forum. Picking a distro is like picking a wife, what appeals to me may not appeal to you and vice versa. Fortunately there are over 700 different linux distro's out there, so everyone can find a distro they like. Having said that, the best place to start your search is at distrowatch.com. Scroll down the page to where they have the top 100 distros listed on the right hand side, and try the top 3 or 4 as a live distro. A live distro is one which runs strictly from the cd/dvd, and isn't installed. If you don't like any of those, work your way down the page until you find the one you like. Once you find the one for you, install it and enjoy linux. Distrowatch also has a search function to help you select a distro.

    Thank you, I am very familiar with Distrowatch
    and have already tried quite a few distro's.
