1. Linux Mint

Most easiest linux distro. Runs on almost anything. Look and feel is very familiar. And similar to Windows 7. You don't need terminal at all.

Another one to add to the list is Linux Lite. It uses an XFCE desktop and is very reminiscent to windows. I am now using it on two 13 year old laptops that were starting to choke on newer versions of ubuntu.

I always had issues with Mint... Kde neon (Plasma) is my favorite distribution for months now.
Manjaro is not really an easy-to-use distro though. You need technical skills to fix issues sometimes.

I agree, manjaro somehow in some complex combination of OS environment + hardware need a "technical' skill a certain degree to fix a problem

OpenSUSE has been, for over a decade, easier than most. It's also the only one that has thumbnails on the filepicker out of the box. Of the ~300 distros I've used none have that. It isn't as popular which is why it doesn't get mentioned much.
I'd probably replace mint or ubuntu with suse in OP.
Mint is only better than ubuntu for most of the reasons it is hated, ironically. (shipping 3rd party closed source stuff, drivers, replacing packages of the same name with ones that are probably better, etc) while all of that makes it easier to use usually, especially to new comers, it's also sometimes misleading. (I don't really care about it, just stating why some hate it)

I prefer Kali KDE -.-.

I learnt Linux by using Kali not to hack :cool: in particular.

It is one of the most system demanding systems that needs research so you can adapt it to your very user needs.

Kali is just oppressed by common rating and frightening by elite Linux(ers) (including the developers:cautious:.)

Anyway, It is good as It supports Debian like Ubuntu, which is a popular resourced Linux core.

Terminal is not kinda fearful like most of people think about it, once you've got familiar with it you will ignore whole the GUIs in the world.

    It is a good daily driver if you know how to adapt it to your needs as Kali is different in terms of some settings such as repositories settings grub settings etc....

    Great post @pulsar, I just want to point out that, while Elementary OS has beautiful desktop environment, it severely lacks customization. But hey, everything has its own pros and cons, so yeah...:D

    You can also include the following:
    • Zorin OS
    • Pop! OS
    • Peppermint OS
    • Deepin (People from China prefer this)
    • Other Distributions of Ubuntu
