Need help picking a new distro
so i really liked Puppy Linux because it was pretty newbie friendly without having that "spoon-fed linux" feel to it.
also it didn't take forever to download and install and was blazing fast in use. but turned out to be less than full-featured for my needs.
so i need to pick a new distro. i'm looking for something that's not gigantic in size and pretty newbie friendly, fast, and full featured (i.e. not missing tons of libraries etc.)
PLEASE dont only suggest Ubuntu, unless that's the only alternative for my preferences.
*edit* my hardware specs if this helps:
Pentium 4 2A Ghz Processor
60 GB Ultra ATA/100
DVD/CD-RW combo drive
40x CD-Rom drive
10/100Base TX Ethernet
