    "Arch Linux is the best distribution site for Linux. The Arch Linux community provides me with really helpful information for upcoming changes that are continually taking place. Also, I can and get the support I need when changes occur that I am having trouble with understanding from other members."

    "I think it is absolutely great. But if the website itself is blocked in certain countries I wonder how practical it would be. Furthermore, I worry whether this would pose a security threat of any sort? As weary as I am of censorship, I also worry about backdoor entrances. But then again, I am all for open access to information... although... why e-mail?"

    "My friend told me I should look into Pinguy OS. I don't know how it compares to Linux, but it is pretty good for what it does for me. It's great for beginners like me too. I'm just getting into the Linux thing and this one seems to be newbie-friendly."

    "I was a beginning user of Linux and I wanted a distribution for my desktop. I tried Manjaro and I really liked it. It was understandable to me as a beginner with a friendly support community and an intuitive design."

    "I have been using Windows ever since I knew what a computer is. I thought it was the best for a multitude of reasons. But a close friend of mine wouldn't stop bugging me about using Zorin. I finally gave in and started using it, and I have seen a dramatic increase in performance. I thought my PC was starting to get slower because of all the clutter I had on Windows, but it is just because Windows was too slow. Ever since I installed Zorin, everything seems to run so much quicker."

    "Getting real tired of Windows 10 being super slow, I decided to install Linux on my computer instead. While searching for Linux distributions for desktop I came across "Linux Mint". I installed it and wow! It's so much faster than Windows. Now I can get rid of my headaches once and for all!"

    "I have tried Ubuntu years ago and I can say I was very satisfied. The big advantage is that it is very user friendly compared to other Linux distributions."

    "This actually looks pretty cool, and I would be interested in maybe trying it out. I would prefer to get a better picture of the whole concept before actually purchasing though."

    "Puppy Linux actually can boot from a CD or USB drive so it can be used even if the internal hard drive is damaged or corrupted. Perfect to use if trying to get around malware or other computer issues. And it is user-friendly, even for those of us who are not tech wizards."
