Define "OS for Beginner".

Go get some books, focus on either a specific Linux system or a specific BSD system. Once you master one system each system won't be necessarily easy but it will actually make sense, it will be fun to learn, and you will actually learn. For starters? Doesn't really matter, you choose your progress in this world. Everyone that is experienced has started with something "newb" I suppose, but we all had the drive to find things out for ourselves and learn as much as we can. No OS will teach you linux.

thanks for your advice. will probably checkout BSD system or Slackware.
ubuntu is not in my choices as I have read reviews, it just won't help me learn

How can someone read Ubuntu?
Oh! sorry, I just got your idea.
Your ponctuation is really bad.

I was preoccupied at somethings else while writing that reply. but you got my point right? so that should do it. :)

If you want to start off with something on a more intermediate level, I suggest Debian. In my years stuck in Ubuntu and derivatives I hardly learned anything, until I switched to Debian.

Well, if you do a custom net install you can learn quite a bit.

At it's core, Debian IS Ubuntu with less hand-holding. (Ubuntu is based on Debian)

That helps out with all of the Ubuntu documentation out there. But remember that it's only mostly compatible.

Can you please stop bashing my thread. It really feels like you're just bashing, you didn't even give any right or appropriate answer to my thread.
The purpose of this thread is to get advice from the professionals.

and I prefer the term Newbie than Noob.


For the record you were once a Noob at something so stop bashing, You're kinda annoying and offending at the same time.

I would suggest Debian, it is easy to use and you can learn a lot from it!
If you would go a little bit deeper i would say Slackare, but try debian first :)

Just jump in to the IRC or PM someone if you need help!

Also, welcome to UH!
I have not been that active lately..
