between three flavours

hello guys i am a linux newbie and i hardly know how to operate this thing
i have run windows and mac (i like this one really)
but i am now trying the linx but u see the problem is
i have installed lindows or linspire as it is the easiest to run as i believe
but some people told me that is not all that goo dnad recommanded fedora core 2
other recommanded mandrake

which of the three you think is a better flavour
the current linspire has problem detecting my wireless connection so i have to stick in the ethernet wire to connect to the internet.

can I hear what you think of each of these flavours?!

for a newbie I'd recommend Mandrake, it's easy to install and configure.
