I believe that you should try Ubuntu first because it is a eaiser transition for
noobs. Basically all of the Linux and BSD-based distro's can do this. I recommend that you
should expirement.

Hey You! Yeah You TheUnixWizard!
You'd better not be using anything else than Ubuntu!
Ubuntu is all you'll ever need man! Nothing else! Linux is Linux Man! And...If you want XFCE on your Ubuntu you'd better use that apt...get thing!

I'm no fan of Ubuntu, but it as good of a starting point as any other out there. There are many happy users of it, the unhappy ones move on.

Yeah, I know. I was being sarcastic. I agree with theunixwizard, but I said it in different words, and everyone took it in the wrong way...

I have heard that Linux XP is just Fedora with the vista desktop theme.
