Every time I try to install a linux distro, it is like that german kid slamming the keyboard up against the box monitor.gif. If there is a distro out there I haven't tried...

If you're having trouble just getting it going, you should try Linux Mint or Ubuntu. Mint is the easiest one I've ever seen, it literally works 100% right out of the box. Best one if you're coming from windows and having difficulty, imo. Ubuntu is also super polished, but it can be weird at times and has a bit of bloat in 2018.

I find it interesting that only these 10 distros (plus some of the BSDs?) are really free as in freedom as in devoid of outside private vendor code. But no one uses these distros!

We're happy to give it all up for convenience even in 2018. Even me, I've got my proprietary video card drivers going for Steam gaming.
