I haven't run into problems with linux Mint 17 / cinnamon, but otherwise 
I agree with Richmond's recommendations. And Peter's to go with a 64-bit 
distro (whichever one you choose). You'll probably find that most of the 
software Richmond recommends is already installed, but if not, apt-get 
or the gui version (name escapes me at the moment) are quite easy to use 
to get new software and keep it up to date.

I do use FileZilla for ftp transfers, as it helps cut down on the number 
of things I need to keep in my head. I'd also recommend either the Atom 
text editor or Sublime Text (or both) as code editors. And I find 
Wireshark and VirtualBox absolutely indispensible, but I realize that 
not everyone needs either one.
