Hmm, not sure about this. E.g. ask to a newbie, novice, to install and use something like Slackware or my intimate enemy Arch. I'm not sure he/she sees them like "user friendly", "easy", "simply point and clic", "intuitive", "easiest"...exploder wrote:Nearly every distribution is simply point and click, they are all pretty user friendly these days.
There are several like Mint, Mageia... Mageia is a quite good example of "user friendly". As said a reviewer of Mageia 1:
I'm less sure about PCLinuxOS... As a reviewer said:I only noticed after reboot that I have not done anything in terminal mode, except for command dmesg and attempt to compile driver. Is it user-friendliness? Yes, as I understand this word.
But as with SimplyMEPIS 11.0, because I had to type GRUB commands to get it to work correctly in the live session, I can't recommend this to total newbies to Linux, at least based on my own experiences. Plus, even the positive part of the experience was marred by that lone KDE Plasma crash, which I am not used to seeing much anymore. I would recommend this more to slightly more experienced Linux users who aren't afraid to tinker and troubleshoot.
I don't think so. The "most intuitive" and "easiest" desktop for someone coming from Windows is undoubtedly KDE, as I have already explained elsewhere in the forum. By the way, this seems quite obvious.Robin wrote:Most intuitive IMO, and having the simplest interface that is easiest for folks who are used to Windows IMO are the Xfce distros.
