Firstly you need choose desktop and package manager what you want to use:
Most popular desktops are: Gnome, KDE, Xfce, Cinnamon, Pantheon, MATE
Most used package managers: apt, rpm, pacman
and then choose your linux distribution:

  • Ubuntu (Gnome with apt)
  • Kubuntu (KDE with apt)
  • Fedora (Gnome or KDE with rpm)
  • Linux Mint (Cinnamon, MATE, Xfce with apt)
  • Elementary (Pantheon with apt)
  • Manjaro (Gnome, KDE, Xfce with pacman)

Only if you are experienced linux user:

  • Arch (anything with pacman)
  • Gentoo (anything with portage)

Manjaro is rolling release distribution based on Arch Linux for newbies without hard installation.

I tried every from this distributions and I very like Linux Mint with Cinnamon or Manjaro looks also very good.. ;)
