Why Linpus? Why not something more mainstream and user friendly, like http://www.ubuntu.com/ or http://linuxmint.com/ ?

The Linpus Linux that comes pre-installed on some devices is nothing more than a basic command line system, in the same way that some vendors ship devices with FreeDOS.
Installing a desktop distribution is the way to go, as you already found out.
