Fedora is very good, but Mint is ~possibly better for a beginner, with the same interface. Mint includes more support for things like graphic drivers, video and audio file playback, wireless drivers, movie disk playback, etc. It's a bit more user friendly to start with, usually, without as much tinkering to set that kind of stuff up.


Zorin is another that is "easy".


You can also install Android.

Yes, Mint is a good choice, too. I've dabbled with it a bit, but I came back to Fedora. After 20 years using Red Hat and Fedora, I'm just more comfortable with RPM-based distributions. Yes, Fedora is lacking a number of codecs you need (because of licensing issues), but these are all on the RPMFusion repository. There are plenty of instructions online for enabling RPMFusion and installing the codecs. This is a one-time step you have to do on a fresh install. Once I have Fedora all set up, it requires almost no maintenance; I just run dnf daily to install the latest patches. Once a year I upgrade to the latest Fedora version either using dnf or running a fresh install.
