New to Linux - distro search frustration
Ok, I decided to give up on Windows, and start using Linux (everyone says: best decision you'll ever make). I tried Ubuntu couple years ago ( I tought that Ubuntu=Linux, I didn't know that there is thousands of linux distros), and I hated it. Now when I know that there is another distros, and desktop enviroments other than Ubuntu and Unity, I can't decide which distro should install. I watched almost all youtube videos about Linux distros in 2016. and I couldn't find any specific distro that stands out from others. I have decent knowledge of computers, I'm willing to learn, but I'm afraid that if I pick wrong distro, I'll give up on Linux completely. Please help.
