I've tried ubunta and its very good. I've heard good things about fedora 5 and just ordered the Live DVD version along with Kubuntu, Knoppix, PCLinux and Slax - all Live. Have Suse already installed - very nice and feature rich, but somone said it's a bit proprietary which I don't understand what this means.

I personally am not a big fan of the KDE environment. I've always preferred the Gnome desktop. The nice thing about Ubuntu, is there are a lot of knowledgeable Ubuntu/Kubuntu users on this site, The OS's forum is pretty busy anyways... It also seems there is a lot of support out there for Ubuntu, with Google almost always turning up answers.

I also really like Fedora Core 5(6 is coming out very soon)...

If you go with either of the above, here's some helpful links. I'm not sure how much the Ubuntu wiki will help with Kubuntu, but you can try it if you like..

Good luck in whatever you decide.
