I've used many flavors - FreeBSD, OpenBSD, RedHat, Mandrake, SuSE, Slackware, Corel

I'm stuck on SuSE.... it basically comes down to personal preference...

SuSE is easy to use even for the Newbie as is Mandrake and some others, but i'll Never sway from SuSE unless they really go down the toilet, then I'll just stick with the version that suits my needs....

I always got the Pro Version also....

You will get many different opinions on this... the best way is to dive in and figure out what you like...
