    Hard to beat Ubuntu for ease of install and use plus all the power of Debian under the hood. Great default packages too. Minimal post install futzing.

    Yeah, second that for Ubuntu. I'm a die hard Debian fun (and still is with my server and stuff) but Ubuntu had been my desktop for a while and I like the way they do it.

    I guess I cant shit on Ubuntu at all. But Fedora is great as is FreeBSD (for desktop usage) or OpenBSD (server side, or desktop with no need to deal with MS Windows).

    If you have compatible hardware, Solaris 10 is kicking some serious butt.

    I also suggest Ubuntu. They will ship free pressed CDs to you if you want them to. They have great guides and forums, too. Hard to beat.

    Ubuntu

    It's only one cd as well. Download, burn, install.

    If you're a KDE man, try Kubuntu. Same distro but with KDE as the default desktop. I believe they've also made small modifications to both KDE and Gnome to make them more usable.

    I like Ubuntu also and use it, but also take a look at Mepis, its KDE and debian based!
