The Best Linux For Beginners is Arch Linux. Period.

Arch Linux is perceived as a difficult OS to install and use. This is why some of the users are so unbelievably smug. They passed the threshold and installed it, so they’re a member of an exclusive club. They must know more than anyone else, right?

Arch Linux has a learning curve. There is no installer (from the creators). You have to boot into a shell, mount a hard drive, copy over some binaries, and get started. You have to compile many things from source code. You have to know your hardware. You have to know exactly what you want because nothing is included with it.
