Default Favorite Linux Distro

Hey guys, I've been bitten by the Linux bug for the past few years and have been trying different distros. I've played with Fedora, Ubuntu, Mint and Zorin. Now they're all pretty good, especially Ubuntu (I loved it so much I contemplated getting a laptop made for it), but I wanted other people's opinions on which one they liked the most and why.

Here's some pics for you to Ooo and Aaaw at:

I've used Fedora, Red Hat, Ubuntu and Mandriva, I think Ubuntu is the most user friendly that I have tried.

Bumping this as I have been on Windows for a while, but got bitten by the bug again. This time I'm trying Kubuntu as I have fallen absolutely in love with Plasma and I am also looking at openSUSE as well due to the stability and larger repository vs Ubuntu.

For some reason I can't seem to get openSUSE to download on my computer to test it, but I did test an Arch Linux distro called Manjaro. I chose the KDE version and I was in love. I found it to be the most complete OS out of the box that I have tested so far. This is especially true compared to Kubuntu which I liked at first, but out of the box felt very incomplete as if KDE was added as an afterthought as there is not custom theme from Canonical. I ended up making one of my own, but still would have been nice for a preinstalled one made by the Kubuntu team. I also tried Zorin which was recommended by Linux users for people who want a Windows 7 like experience, but I found it too limiting in what I could do with it compared to Ubuntu and KDE. I plan to try Fedora and Mint next, but so far Manjaro KDE is the one to beat (I still like Ubuntu though and cannot wait to test Unity 8 once it's released).

I have used Mandriva, Mint and Ubuntu.

I used to think Mint is the most user friendly Linux but nowadays I think Ubuntu has the edge.

I tried Mint, but the Cinnamon desktop just is not for me. I can download Mint with KDE as well, but I just wanted to try and see if I would like the intended environment. It's not bad, but it reminds me of xp in a way which I didn't like. I did try the new Fedora. Last one I tried was with Gnome 3, but I didn't like it (it felt more like a mobile OS). I tried it again to see if the improvements to Gnome 3 made it more suitable to my tastes, but I still don't like it. I guess I'm too much of a weirdo who likes KDE and Unity. Now my major problem is I have to plug in my computer to Ethernet to get internet as Linux has problems detecting my wifi driver out of the box. Also my backlit keyboard's software was made with Windows in mind, so if I want to customize that I will have to see if Wine can open the program.

Mint all day.

I've used Ubuntu, Lubuntu, Xubuntu, Fedora, Puppy Linux, and a few others and none of them compare to the ease of use and stability of Mint. I use MATE on the laptop and Cinnamon on the desktop, no complaints.

I hate Unity and GNOME 3 with a passion.

Mint is SCUUUUM! But why the Unity hate? Sure it tries to mimic OS X and Windows 7 to varying degrees and uses more resources than even KDE, but it works most of the time. At least the meta key is mapped to the Ubuntu launcher. Totally get the GNOME 3 hate, and now some users are getting more curious about the fact that there's a Profile ID when you install it on your computer bringing privacy concerns. I may try MATE next.

I have 3 O/S on my desktop !

Ubuntu, Windows XP and Windows 7. Grub allows me to select O/S at the time of booting.

What browser is best with Ubuntu ? Firefox is very slow and I don't want to use Chrome, Currently using Chromium, which is same as Chrome.

From what I read, you're using the most recommended alternate browser for the OS. Here are some more choices, though:

I use Opera on Windows, haven't tried any others.

Despite being popular, Firefox and Opera get a lot of internet hate for how bloated and slow they are now. I haven't used Opera since my old Galaxy S and that was only the mobile version. Firefox used be my go to browser when I had Windows 7 on my old laptop, but I have gotten used to Edge to the point where it's my daily driver for web browsing. I refused to try out Chrome due to my dislike of Google's practices, but now I've been rethinking my use of MS's products as well, hence my inner debate of leaping into Linux and making Duck Duck Go as my primary search engine.

Vivaldi is the best browser out there. It's from the guy who was in charge of Opera back when Opera was good.
