'best' distro is a tough one to pull, obviously everyone has different opionions, its all a matter of choice, thats the beauty of linux. But hers the Kevin breakdown of your basic choices. There is the SUSE Mandrake, Fedora line, the very newbie friendly simple install gorup, of those, personaly i would recommend mandrak, and ive had my best experiances with that. Then there are the three power user varieties, debian, gentoo, slackware (althouhgt slackware is more of a bridge than the other 2, it is certainly on a differnt level than the first three) Finaly, there are the specialties, all sorts, xbox linux, media linux. yoper.
