If you want to try linux I suggest you checkout this site for reviews and info on the various linux flavours...

I have used Mint many moons ago in a dual boot setup with windows and it worked a charm back then, though I do like the look of Manjaro Linux.

Do you have any personal thoughts on the various differences in Linux versions?

Me, without any real experience, I could see the differences being relatively trivial... all the way up to the differences being absolutely critical.

For example, if there's a Linux version that's only meant to run on certain hardware, it would probably be a freaking symphony of headaches trying to get it to run on different hardware.

Something like that. \_(ツ)_/

Most modern linux versions are designed to run on all PC hardware of the last 5 to 10 years or so and for the most part even much older hardware will work.

Most usually you will have few, if any issues, those in the top 10 or so have exellent community support through their forums. That said there is always a learning curve and the new install is the most scary part.

If you should run into any such issues, any newbie posts are usually answered within the hour or less, you can easily browse those forums to confirm this.

The reason I liked the Manjaro Linux is that it is a rolling release and newer versions can be installed without having to backup and reinstall the whole thing again and I kind of like the KDE desktop with all the bells, animations and whistles.



Makes winblows look prehistoric, the customisations you can apply are almost endless, whilst being within it's working design and again any issues the forum support will back you up.
