There are quite a few Linux variants available, my favourite freebie is Mint

As Belatucadrus says, Linux Mint is very nice indeed and the 18.1 version (almost the latest) is stable and has long term support to April 2021. I suggest you choose the Cinnamon version using either 32 bit or 64 bit as your hardware dictates.
