What Distribution do I use for testing?
Hey there. This question is probably asked a lot of times but I couldnt find any that really helps me in my case.
I have a main computer with all my stuff on it and everything a main computer does.
Now I want to buy a laptop with linux on it just as something like a test-laptop where I can do stuff without worrying that I loose important data. It should be easy to reinstall, quite fast, compatible with most windows software and easy to use. Im pretty good with computers, so getting used to linux wont be a big problem for me.
What Linux Distribution should I use?
