Suse 9.1 I would say seems pretty good, its the only one Ive ever managed to get working, the install was pretty straighforward, no real problems, and most things seem to be working, except my old internal modem, but I heard that was pretty normal.

When I can, I use Ubuntu...although sadly I am a Linux wannabe, stuck in a Windows world for work.

I find Ubuntu to be the easiest to use, most hardware supportive, best package management distro around.

Ubuntu is one of the best for those who haven't used linux before. Currently I run it as main OS, but have tried Gentoo/Debian/Slackware and LFS, but didn't get my gfx to work properly. In Ubuntu it works flawlessly. I will probably switch to Gentoo when I learn how :P

Agreed, Ubuntu is probably the best for newer Linux users. I'd love to use Ubuntu full time if I could, but still have too many applications I need in Windows. I think I'm still reeling from my bad experience with very buggy Mandrake and Fedora Core 2 distributions.

Sorry about this, but I need to post something to keep my membership. I want to observe for awhile, then experiment installing on an older laptop later. I'm sure I will have questions then.

My contribution to John's "glass eye" quote is grammatical... It should be two sentences, and the second one should read "He needs it to look for a job".
