    did u tried manjaro?
    its based on arch i think

    edit:
    didn't find usb drive, so i used xubuntu with unetbootin
    quiet impressive the responsiveness
    and the gui is good
    its on HDD right now, waiting few days and will clone it to ssd.

    i installed powershell :)
    wine, ff works winamp also :)
    i duno why its seems moving to linux is hard

    yep I think that Arch is the better distro but requires a lot of knowledge to make your own O.S. for this your size is very little comparing with any other distros so again I think is better take Ubuntu or Mint principally for new users :)

    I've got to say Budgie is my Desktop of Choice, though I wish it didn't rely on Gnome as much (This is Changing!) as it does limit some features - Like for example I have 3 monitors, and the way that gnome does backgrounds basically limits me to a single image shown on all 3 screens at once. I tried KDE, but it really didn't like my multi monitor setup.

    Distro is of course, Arch.

    I can never settle on 1 distro.

    Debian
    Ubuntu
    OpenSuse
    Arch

    If I could somehow find one that combines all the above, I'd be golden. As for desktop shells

    Gnome
    Budgie
    Xfce
    Cinnamon

    I'm with Xfce because of its simplicity.
