    Many years using Trisquel, and always happy with it.
    If the plan is to stay 100% Free and at the same time have something simple and friendly for the end user or the newbie to distros, it is probably the most recommended of all.
    Easy to install, easy to use, difficult to break.
    The mini version (Trisquel Mini) is worth taking care of, which has always been very light and efficient (in general, I have opted for it).
    A joy to know that it continues to develop.

    Good morning I am from Argentina, I am on the subject of learning Linux, I think that in general we stumble upon the issue that each operation must be handled with the Linux terminal, with commands that are sometimes difficult to memorize and in that aspect I suggest you tell me If I am right or not, I have downloaded the MXlinux 21 version, because I found the desktop very similar to windows, but I still did not learn to use it, so you who deal with the distro issue, know more, I hope you guide me as you choose some distro similar to w. or where I could learn didactically the operation of linux distro
    Thank you

    Good initiative, I am glad that the project continues ...
    Which does not mean that my experience was negative, I wanted to install the previous version on a laptop and I was unable to make the Wi-Fi driver work.
    I have some knowledge of computer science and I am not afraid of the terminal (although I am not from systems)
    I spent time on various routes, be careful! whenever you fight with something you learn -that's undeniable-, but to a certain extent that no longer paid off and I went to another distro, specifically to Zorin; And what do you want me to tell you, it won't be so free but everything worked for me the first time ...
    Moral: so free so free that users can be left on the way
