When I mean 'user-friendly', I meant not having to deal with the terminal just to install something. Yes, I've seen some promising OS on Google like ReactOS and Haiku, but I would like to get people's opinions here so I can cut the list of OS that Google got me and just find what may seem promising. Thanks in advance, guys.

Get it out of your head that copying and pasting one liners into the terminal is some sort of brain surgery. It isn't.
If they asked how I died tell them: Still angry.

Many times pasting something into the terminal is faster and easier than navigating the user interface.
PS4 has blast processing.

Most 'true' Linux distros may suffer from Terminal installs at some point depending on what you want (if you just want the basics it's unlikely with a decent distro like Mint Cinnamon).

As others have said, Ubuntu or Mint are good ones to try out. There is another one called Zorin that has a GUI very similar to Windows 7. Might be worth looking into for someone coming from a Microsoft OS to a Linux distribution.
