couldbeworse: My favourite GNU/Linux desktop distribution is Trisquel ( https://trisquel.info/) and for a server I use Debian (https://www.debian.org/). I also have an old MacBook running Xubuntu (http://xubuntu.org/) and a Raspberry Pi running Raspbian 'Jessie'. My 10 year old son is using Linux Mint (http://www.linuxmint.com/).
Never leave home without a Tails live USB (https://tails.boum.org/).

The foss distros are pretty cool. Linux Mint is super easy. I think that is the distro to recommend to anyone wanting to try out Linux as a first timer. After getting some experience using Debian or Trisquel are both good choices. Ubuntu is ran by a company that seems to prioritize profits over user freedom, but other than that it is very easy to use.

Tails is great. Also look how to make a Whonix USB here: http://yuxv6qujajqvmypv.onion/ (tor hidden service)

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you’re referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.
Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called “Linux”, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project. There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use.
Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine’s resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called “Linux” distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.
