Hey there ndu ndu (cool and original name by the way ...)

Okay, as stated in the thread, dont go for the look-alikes.
Let's go for a run-down:

Ubuntu - easy on the "new guy" and very complete.
Xubuntu - in case you'd want to try that on a lighter/older system...
Debian - the "older brother" of the set, super complete though perhaps a bit less on the stuffing, to my humble taste...
These are the "install-once-use-forever" type, or: rolling releases.

Fedora - good, complete, pretty stable, but you'll have to reinstall it every year or so as it is not a rolling release. Educational, but time consuming.

On the other hand, there is a questionaire that gives the answers according to what you need...

And, personally, at the end of the day - it's all academic. The best distro for you is the one you're okay with!
That's how close and personal Linux can get!

My humble suggestion for you would be to try Linux Mint 10 - Gnome at least once. I found it much more user friendly than any other Linux OS out there.

Regards.

I would recommend to use one of the many distro-choosers out there, like this one or this one.
I also would recommend to have a look at Distrowatch, try the first ones on the list, almost all of them have live-CDs, so that you can try them without the need to install.

Since you are wanting a Windows-like distribution I also recommend to read this article for clarification.
