When you say ‘except Ubuntu’, are you also looking to rule out Ubuntu derivatives (like Mint)? If you’re looking for a distro which isn’t based on Debian/Ubuntu, and is relatively newbie friendly, then I would suggest Mageia (based on the old Mandrake/Mandriva fork).

I agree with 76ron. Mint is easy to install and easy to use. You will not be disappointed.

Good suggestion as Mint is based on Ubuntu it doesn’t really answer the question here. I have noticed it hasn’t been updated since October 2018, but that is not a bad thing as the website mentions the next version is in beta testing now.

Mint is great, but I’d suggest Manjaro KDE. Fast, stable, light & efficient. It can do as little or as much as you ask of it. Comes with VLC pre-installed, I believe. :slight_smile:
