Good Mac distro?

I'm not really a newbie per se but this is, no doubt, a newbie question.

I have an iMac 350 (blueberry for those inquisitive minds) that is a paperweight / dust collector. I want to convert it into a Linuxbox for general purposes, maybe do a little C.

I'm kind of leaning towards Debian but I don't have the resources to download 9 ISO images (unless I'm missing something and it's not 9 ISOs).

Anyone wanna tell me what they're running on their Mac and why?
