I am planning to have Linux on a second partition with my Windows 10. I have tried Ubuntu, Linspire etc. few years back... But now I am not sure which version to go for - Ubuntu or Mint ? Which one is more user friendly? Then cinnamon or Mate ? which one will be better for a windows user? I have downloaded Ubuntu Cinnamon 15.10 yesterday. Planning to download mint too. Ubuntu 15.10 is not LTS - What will happen after 9 months? will I be able to upgrade to next version without full re-installation? Someone fluent with Linux please guide me -> I am using MBR partition scheme for Windows 10 and have extra partition which I can delete and create an UN-allocated space for Linux install.
