Antergos I think - great installer
or
was it Manjaro
also great installer
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on https://www.youtube.com/erikdubois
then use the power of google
then use the power of our moderators.

Ubuntu 10.04 in 2010
Arch - Manjaro, did not like the way the devs kept the updates back, tried Antergos did not like the looks (before knowing I would customize it (used to Windows lackluster options of changing your desktop)) and then found ArchMerge

I began with linux around 1997 as 14 year old on dial-up internet access. I think it was RedHat, later Slackware. Obviously, it was too much for me. So I ended as Windows user for quite some time.
As student I discovered Ubuntu, which was great, but I wasn't fully satisfied with it. So I migrated to Arch and use it since then.
Best regards, Tim
