There are more interesting Linux desktop distributions
to choose from than ever before. However, if you're looking for
major distros with a great deal of support, you'll want to look at
the big four: Fedora, Mint, openSUSE, and Ubuntu.
Each has its own outlook and methods. Thanks to Linux's
customizability, you could take any of them and completely revamp
it, if you wish. But unless your idea of a good time is operating
system hacking, chances are you'll want a distribution that already
meets your needs.
