Ubuntu

I prefer the Ubuntu version, very simple and easy to use and for those who are used to running windows, it would not be a big problem.

And if you ever get tired of trying various Linux distros, you can look at other open source Unix options, like FreeBSD.

Just be warned that FreeBSD is very picky about hardware! In my experience anyway.

(Older stuff may work better with the BSDs. Even so, don't expect suspend/resume to work. And do expect setting up wifi and automounting to be an absolute pain.)

Gentoo. When I started using linux seriously ( 5ish years ago) , it had the best manual and the friendliest community. Those might even still be true.

I use Slackware because one of those "which distribution should I choose" websites told me to and I haven't found a pressing need to switch.

I use Mint (on a VM, but nevermind). It's neat, supposedly pretty user-friendly, and it has everything I need in a linux VM (a C compiler, apt-get, make and emacs. Though I probably installed the latter myself).

I have 4 older/slower machines: 2 run Arch, 1 runs Fedora 11, and I recently installed Fedora 16 on the last one. Most just sit and run grid computing projects.

Fedora Core 13 and Ubuntu Natty for work, Mint 11 and Gentoo at home. (Not mentioning the various Debians on anything I can install it on, like NAS's or the like)

Only by booting from LiveCD, so far.

It sounds like I should burn a set of Fedora 16 LiveCDs (I have Fedora 12, 13, and 15).
