Latest distro- yet easiest for complete newbie?
I had tried linux years ago, but I was unable to have the patience to learn it. I would like to try again. I tried Mandrake Linux back then, but noticed their website doesnt appear to work anymore ( redirect ).
I wanted to know, what distro is now good for the first time linux newbie wanting to learn linux?
Hopefully one that has good documentation for those installing it.
I may be installing it on a laptop with a Promise Raid array ( software raid I believe, it is a Sager 8790 laptop ) and would like to get a distro that will work with the raid array doing a duel boot with my presently installed WinXP Pro install ( I have partition magic for duel installs that I have used with Windows duel installs ).
Any help / advice is greatly appreciated as I would like to migrate away from windows to linux, once I feel comfortable in it.
