Linux Mint. Its just works and is so easy. I've been able to convert most of my family to Linux with Mint installs.

Despite some issues with 9.10, Ubuntu is still the best desktop OS all round. Despite this, Fedora and Mandriva continue to strive forwards and are very viable alternatives.

I voted for linux mint but here is my list.

1. Linux mint (basically a better version of ubuntu)
2. Arch Linux (gotta love the simplicity. I'm using it with XFCE and Slim on one of my older machines.)
3. Fedora (the bleeding edge)

Moved from Slackware to Ubuntu about two years ago, and never looked back (and I was using Unix before DOS was born, so I'm not a newbie).

sigh ... if only a good, well-supported and well-marketed x-windows distro had existed in 1995 ...

The polarity of opinion on some distros, especially Ubuntu, indicates the vast disparity in user needs, personality, etc.
