Like everyone else keeps saying, try out the distros. I like the Knoppix live cd, I use that in work when I don't have to use windows, though at home ...

    Im also a linux noob, and haev just settled on mepis.
    Most the other distros i tried (including fedora core 3, mandrake 10.1, kubuntu, suse 9.2 and vidalinux) ended up either having problems, or being slightly hard to use.
    Mepis is great o use, as it comes with some great pre-installed programs that i would have to install myself on other distros!
    it also comes with mp3 support as standard, auto mounting of hard drives and cd drom drives, lots of video codecs, easy package management through kpackage.
    I did however have a problem getting it to run at 1280x1024 resolution, but i went on the mepislovers.org forums and they helped me fix it. The community support for it is great! its also a debian based distro, and i have heard that means its very stable.
    I would recommend trying out different distros and settling on your favourite.
    I also liked kubuntu (or ubuntu , ubuntu comes with the gnome gui where as kubuntu comes with kde, thats the only difference really). I had a few problems with kubuntu, and don't like how the root access is disabled!
    good luck!

    I would personally say Suse, Mandrake, Fedora 3 (in that order). However, opinions are like certain bodily orifices...everyone has them. You'll get a lot of different answers for this one.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.
