Thumbs up Gentoo!

With every new (old) computer I'm installing on I cannot help but stop and marvel at the greatness of Gentoo...

Gentoo, without question.

The forums are great, and even though it takes more time to install (and compile) the resulting OS rocks!! (a word which here means fast, sleek and highly configurable)

The best part is that it puts me in control of my own PC where I decide what programs I want and the options to go along with them.

best of both worlds

Texstar hit it out of the park with PCLinuxOS. Latest release is beta 8 and is more stable and has more good packages than most commercial distros. Pre-install of mplayer is not buggy like mepis and the pre-compiled nvidia driver works without touching the machine. The killer is that apt-get is incorporated (less dpkg of course). 3 city office network up and running in an hour or so. As a devout debian guy, I struggled with this choice, but Texstar has given us the best of both worlds.
