If you want a DVD quickly, you can purchase a DVD relatively inexpensively 
at https://www.osdisc.com/.  You can also get the distros as a flash drive 
if you system will boot to that.  Those work a bit faster than a DVD.

Personally I like XFCE so Xubuntu 15.10 or would be the choice for that.
Of course you can just install any and change via apt-get.
