You can make Linux look very closely to windows, but once you take the cloths off it is entirely different, so you will be on a learning curve.Please advise which Linux OS is the best for Beginners and is most similar to Windows 11.
I am a new Linux user and I chose to use Mint. At the time, I didn't even know Linux.org existed. So, I made my decision the way any self-righteous old man would. I watched YouTube! The general consensus seemed to me that Mint was the way to go for a new user.Greetings Friends!

Love the look of your desktop. Awesome job. 20 years ago I would have loved to have been able to design my own desktops. I did a whole lot of graphic design back then. A little known fact (and one I don't/won't mention very often) to give one an idea of how long ago that was, I was the first to design a skin for the Windows Media Player that had multiple color options. It was the DRM2.0. That thing was in their skin repository for several years and was downloaded over 4 million times the last time I was able to check. Of course, with updates and the like, it disappeared years ago.However, I do design all my own desktops from scratch.
Well, it's nothing like Win 10/11. But I feel it is a little reminiscent of Win 7 or 8. I think it's really just how it's laid out. The clock, volume etc. down in the lower right corner. Start menu in the lower left. The most often used items available for quick access in the start menu.Some say Linux Mint is similar to windowz but I can't see it...you could always do this...
You can customize Linux to look however you want, most people here just use the default theming, scroll through r/unixporn on Reddit. Just use Windows if you want something similar to Windows.But I feel it is a little reminiscent of Win 7 or 8. I think it's really just how it's laid out.

For me anyway, I don't think it's so much "wanting something similar to Windows", as it is not wanting something so far removed from what I have become accustomed to that it feels like I just got tossed off the bus in a foreign country where I don't speak the language. Even though I know Linux and Windows are extremely different, with Mint, it still has a familiar feel to it.

I feel bad when I have to take down a Linux installation. It's like killing a penguin for dinner. It's like having a friend and then sending them to the other side of the world for one silly reason usually.The thing about Linux is be not afraid to replace it if you don't like it.
