I have had my family on Fedora Core 2 for a while, but its been hell keeping the machines working. Things just keep getting worse. I have found that I don't like Red Hat based distros in general, so I have the following question:
What is the best Debian based distribution for an entire family? It needs to be simple, and have plenty of plugins (for java, flash, css decryption for DVD's, etc....)
I have taken a liking to MEPIS, but if you can think of a better more maintainable distro for my entire family, I would greatly appreciate it.
*Note: I am rather new to linux myself, but I have quite a bit more experience than the rest of my family, so I am willing to do a little manual configuration if required.
