I can't really imagine it mattering, any distribution could do that.

If you are currently using Mac, you will probably feel more comfortable in GNOME than KDE (GNOME is a bit more reminiscent of OS X than KDE, which is clearly Windows inspired). So the ever-popular Ubuntu wouldn't be a bad place to start.

Install Kubuntu, add medibuntu to repos (go to their site)... install different packages, then you can stream anything.

use synaptic for installing relevant packages (it is easier than adept)

#sudo apt-get install synaptic

Alternatively, you can install Ubuntu, then install Ubuntu Restricted Extras.

That way, you will already have Synaptic instead of Adept.

Cheers
