    On my laptop, windows has become slow, laggy and boring, so I'm deciding to dual boot a Linux distro and windows 10. What distro should I use? I'm most familiar with Ubuntu, but I'm ok with others too. I'm wanting something with an easy to use ui and is more user friendly. It should also be able to be installed through a USB drive. Any suggestions??

    Linux Mint if you want something easy and nice ui.
    If you wanna go nuts, go with FreeBSD.

    If you want to to experince something new, try Mandriva or OpenSUSE.

    Mint if you don't like Ubuntu
    Solus if you want something TOTALLY new and fresh in the Linux eco-system
    Arch if you are a turbo autist want to use a command line installation

    TempleOS if you like real man operating systems :^)

    (as said by others) Mint is absolutely worth checking out. "easy to use UI and more user friendly" could very well be its tag line.

    I'll also +1 solus. If for nothing else, it's not based on another distro. But it's a clean OS. At least that's what I can tell from what I've seen.
