Every distro targets a different group of users. I use kubuntu, which is alright if you are indeed a noob and just getting out of Windows.

I have used Kubuntu, because I love the KDE... but also fedora is not bad

Fedora has KDE as well, so if you prefer it anyway why won't you give it a try. I have also read very good reviews about openSUSE.

Right !!.As a newbie found Ubuntu a superb Linux alternative for windows. But over the time I find OpenSuse and CentOS as a more satble one.

Yea I use Ubuntu which is an easy Linux distro to use. I have always wanted to try fedora I have a dvd of fedora core 5 but havent ever install it. I guess it is because Ubuntu hasnt ever pissed me off like windows has. Enough of my ranting

LOL, that's funny. Windows certainly can piss you off once in awhile. I've found that it runs a lot better without antivirus and antispyware (you still need firewall, and you need to lock the core): http://invincible-windows.blogspot.com/ But it's still slower and clunkier than Linux any way you slice it, and one wrong move can mess it up. One skill I find indispensable if you're a download junkie in Windows is drive imaging. Then you have to defragment, clean the registry, reboot after Patch Tuesday, and hope their patches don't throw your machine into a blue screen or reboot cycle! You make a good point: "If it's not broke, don't fix it." If Ubuntu meets your needs, and does so without problems, what's left for you to look for? Ubuntu is my distro of choice, too. Of course I'm dual-booted with XP, but I only use it for projects that only Windows apps can handle. And since I have it locked down, I simply turned off automatic updates and leave it alone. For personal use, Ubuntu is so much more convenient. Salute!

I have used many linux distros. So far the best distro for me would be fedora. I have been using it many times than any other linux distribution.

There is no such thing as "Best Linux Distribution". Linux can be used by anybody and everybody as they see fit. And in my opinion this is the greatness of Open Source.

I have tried Ubunto and Knoppix DVD 5.11, when it comes to functionality I'll go Knoppix. It has all the programs and tools I need. Office, Internet browser/editor, Graphics, multimedia players, disk utilities even games.

Ubuntu is my choice, and it's a descendant of Debian. I haven't tried Debian yet; I don't know for sure if I'll ever get around to it. Now that the USB bug appears to have been patched up, Ubuntu works perfectly. I even ordered factory-pressed CDs for 32 and 64-bit machines, and put a sticker on mine to make it proper. 8-)
