    New computer advice

    I've been exclusively using Linux for the last 10 years. I started out with Ubuntu and now use Arch. I wouldn't got for Ubuntu if I was starting to use Linux now; probably Linux Mint. It's based on Ubuntu but with some of the crud stripped out but apparently still very user friendly. I also use...
