@papa puppy looks cool.
where most people just need to access a web browser, almost any linux distribution will work for them...as long as the hardware works for them 'out of the box'.
you don't want a person's first experience of linux to be dealing with modprobe and other driver garbage.
so if they can flash a USB drive, they can try almost any distro risk free to see if it detects hardware, and see the interface.
@tootbrute In my own personal question for a "Simple is Best" OS, I have been happy with Puppy Linux for the last year or so, but an currently giving TAILS another look.
In the past I've had some success with Mint for a first-time Linux user.
Perhaps Linux's biggest advantage is the new lease on life it can give old hardware.
@papa I think Kubuntu with KDE window manager (the style of interface) is a pretty friendly one.
ubuntu with gnome window manager is good too.
the best part of these 'basic' ones is there are so many resources online for when you need help.
i tried others like Tails (too specific in purpose), Qubes (too difficult), Manjaro (very different than ubuntu) but I like the look and feel of KDE the best.
Others have suggested Mint and Elementary (Mac like interface) too.
@tootbrute Do you have a favorite Linux distribution to help Windows-heads make the transition?
