Hello guys, so here i am, choosing my first linux build. I spent so much time on my Windows 7 machine but it's time to move on. But when you're choosing windows, it's quite easy. Either you want not-working crap(Win 10) or great working os (Win 7) - just kidding. Need some flames here you know.
But on the side of UNIX world, it's absolutely insane. Firstly, what i don't understand is distros. I mean, what i see, is desktop environment, so what's the difference between arch KDE and kubuntu for example ? Except from repositories..
Based off of that, i could choose my distro. I've seen so many arch users lately and with architect installer, it seems like pretty easy to install and choose everything i want to have on it.
But here comes the desktop environment.... I am lost.. One will say KDE, other one will say Gnome.. Then third one comes in and come up with Xfce and it's impossible just to say "this is better". So is there some easy-to-start-with DE ? I mean, it can be a bit harder than Unity/Ubuntu, but still, I am not very friendly with UNIX shell just yet.
The other things like WM and GTK seems just like design things to me, so i'll probably be able to play with it myself.
Thanks for every advice to Windows pleb.submitted by /u/Shinobinya

Warning to Mint users planning an upgrade to 18, if you don't already know this, you will NOT be able to use the proprietary FGLRX driver for AMD cards any longer. Only the open source driver works, which doesn't perform that bad actually, but I wanted to throw that little warning out there after I found out the hard way. Some people use their GPUs for more than just gaming, such as cryptocurrency mining for which you need the closed driver.submitted by /u/DirtyPolecat
