Arch Linux

Arch linux “A simple lightweight linux distribution” simply provides you a command processor, no useless applications, not even a desktop environment. Installing a desktop environment is your choice. Extremely customizable. For a beginner I recommend using a virtual machine software, otherwise when you get stuck you will have to use another PC to find answers. I myself is a  newbie to linux. But starting with Arch linux was entertaining.
