Pop is very beginner friendly. Maybe better than Ubuntu with the Nvidia support and hidpi daemon.

Is that it? Just a few mentions of Linux distro's with no real explanation of why they are good for beginners? What's does a beginner get, gain or learn from these distros?

Please add some context or some level of investigation into your post. You also commented after you prefer Fedora but don't give a reason to why.

For beginners? I don't think so. Maybe after using Mint for a while first
