Hi wootang and welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

I have to be careful here (as I’m on the Peppermint team) but I’d say any Ubuntu based distribution such as
Ubuntu
Mint
Peppermint
ElementaryOS
Ubuntu MATE
Ubuntu Budgie
Xubuntu

Reasons - You’ll find more help/documentation/online tutorial/etc. for Ubuntu than any other distro, and generally they ‘just work’.

Personally I’d say Peppermint, but I guess I would wouldn’t I :slight_smile:

and instructions for making a LiveUSB in Windows:
https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,4350.0.html

But why not try a few as LiveUSB’s before deciding which suits you best, and only then actually installing.

ok mate iwll try some but i did try zorin 1.2 and it destroy my windows 10> j s downloader -ffl(trj)
i have not given up on linux just yet but would like a good clean usb boot up
where can i get one form so i can try my be three os 8)

Not sure what you mean by “a good clean usb boot up, where can I get one” ?

What exactly are you trying to achieve ? … putting Linux on a USB stick ?

If so, I take it you’ll be creating this USB stick in Windows ?


And are you trying to say the Zorin ISO has a JS/Downloader trojan ? … somehow I doubt that.

And if you’ve not booted it how could it “destroy windows”, in fact even if the ISO did contain the JS/Downloader trojan it would be inert, it’s a Windows trojan so couldn’t be executed by Linux.

[EDIT]

Unless of course Zorin 12 contains WUBI which is a Windows executable installer ?
