Best Linux OS for me?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am looking for the most secure, most simple Linux OS, I have used Ubuntu but I just don't really like it. Also, is it easy to play older games such as Warcraft III in linux?

PS: How secure is a Linux OS? less or more vulnerable than a mac?

As far as security. PEBKAC. The user and their habits these days is the weakest link in any OS security. Their are exploits for both OSX and Linux that rely on complacent users who will click on anything.

Try Linux Mint.

Hmm well I am a retard now aren't I... I suppose I should read a bit more before posting a thread... Can a mod delete this before it makes me look like even more of an idiot?
