One for older laptops and desktops ( also fine for newer ones ) called Lubuntu.
Then for newer than old xp era ones Linux Mint.
First off both are very secure and have thousands of apps in store, with thousands more that can be installed from the web. Both are free with updates and security, and have full support for three years then upgrades to the next version as soon as available.

Linux Mint primarily uses free
and open-source software, making exceptions for some proprietary software, such as plug-ins and
codecs that provide Adobe Flash, MP3, and DVD playback.Linux Mint's inclusion of proprietary software is unusual; many Linux distributions do not include proprietary software by default, as a common goal for some Linux distributions is to
adhere to the model of free and open-source software.
Linux Mint comes with a wide range of software installed that includes LibreOffice, Firefox, Thunderbird, HexChat, Pidgin, Transmission, VLC media player and GIMP. Additional software that is not installed by default can be downloaded using the package manager.
