1. Ubuntu

Ubuntu’s interface is similar to MacOS, so if you have used an Apple computer, then you will feel at home with Ubuntu.It is available at free of cost

2. Raspbian PIXEL

Raspbian has always been light on resources, but most users would avoid it because of its interface.In terms of specs, the Raspbian PIXEL can even run on a machine with a 700MHz CPU and 256MB RAM. It’s a great option if you’ve got an old laptop lying around that you can’t use for even basic tasks anymore.

3. Linux Mint

It comes bundled with a lot of useful software such as Firefox browser, Thunderbird email client, Gimp photo editing suite, and LibreOffice. In terms of design and usability – it can be customized to your liking and it’s easy to use.

4. Zorin OS
