Ask Slashdot: What’s The Easiest Linux Distro For A Newbie?

joseph Kramer — a long-time user of both Windows and MacOS — comes to Slashdot with the ultimate question:

I’ve been lurking here for years and seen many recommendations for a Linux flavor that works. What I’m really looking for is Linux that works without constant under-the-hood tweaking (ala early Windows flavors, 3.1, 95/98). Does such an OS exist? For the record, I am not an IT tech. I just need something to work with the mechanical equipment it controls. Any recommendations?
When it comes to Windows and MacOs, he describes himself as “fed up with their shenanigans.” So leave your best answers in the comments. What’s the best way for a newbie to get started with Linux?
