the only distro fitting to my needs was Linux Suse 9 or 10.0 , is has easy user interface, great graphics, it was easy to install, easy to configure , the control panel is easy to use, only good things about Suse, but there are people who prefer other operating systems, i prefer suse for personal use not for making servers.

I have not tried lots of distros but to this moment the one I think works better for me is ArchLinux, it's not a n00b-distro you have to be a little experienced to use it and the installation it's not user-friendly at all but in performance is the very best and allow an enormous grade of customization, you will have exactly what you need and nothing else. Also, it's optimized for i686 that menas a lot more of speed. Other distros I've used are: SuSE and XUbuntu

in some IRC chat there are lot of channel about particular or generic linux distroes ( for example: #ubuntu, #suse, #redhat ecc ) in those channel you can ask about resolve your problems, old users are very happy to help the new users (newbies)

ohhh, linux... what a wonderful word :-) i use kubuntu 6.10... i choice it because its is very safe rispect windows, infact the 95% of viruses and other malware are projected for windows OS. My choice is oriented for ubuntu because there is a big team of programmers that increase and help to use opensource software. I find the official ubuntu website an important big forum where if you have a problem can ask and usually team help you to resolve your problem..... Try it and you can forget to use antivirus programs, i use it since 2 years and i haven't problems with viruses... this type of problem with windows can appear lot time in a day :-)

i have used both redhat and ubuntu. installation wise, i will choose ubuntu 6.06 (and above) because it will run as live cd with options to install. graphic(interface) wise, i will choose redhat (fedora) because to me, it is more trendy.

With redhat, you need to know some cmd lines. With Ubuntu, it's pretty much as easy as windows, so it is the most user-friendly. Might not be the best, but of the two, it is more user friendly.

I feel different people have different opinions concerning the distibutions. We all have our preferences. I don't think Redhat is user-friendly. Ubuntu and Suse are quite okay.

I think there isn't the best Linux distribution. Everyone has different needs so everyone like a different Linux distribution. If you want an easy to use distro you can choose Mandriva or Ubuntu, if you want a serious distro get Red Hat, if you want a fast distro choose Slackware or better Gentoo; but Gentoo is very difficult to install and use. There are a lot of distro, everyone with particular features. Try someone e then choose.

I have tried a whole lot of linux distros including redhat/fedora and ubuntu. I dont think redhat is user friendly, at lest to newbies. I didn't feel ubuntu is also user friendly even though I have being hearing it as a user friendly linux distro. From all distribution I have tested, I think opensuse (www.opensuse.org), the community edition of the popular SUSE linux, is the best and the most user friendly distro available. I would also vote for freespire (www.freespire.org) for newbies and desktop use.
