I see no reason to get an enterprise linux for personal use, but that is just me.
Mandrake: Use it if you just want it to work, want variety and a lot of Graphical tools, but don't mind shelling out for Mandrake Club (20 a month). Strictly speaking you can get and use mandrake for free, but the free version sucks in my mind.
SUSE: Just want it to work and like KDE
Fedora: Just want it to work and like GNOME
Gentoo: If you want to completely customize your box and learn a lot about linux at the expense of having moments of extreme stress.
Debian: If you like ulcers or will have a guru set it up for you.
