Ubuntu has been extremely stable in my experience. It's also got relatively good support too. It's one of the better linux distributions by far. I'd recommend it over Fedora any day. Especielly for the beginning linux users.

Ubuntu is great IMO, I really like the LIVECD feature. The OS is very stable but it sometimes slows down to a crawl (Idk why might just be me) I also like the GIMP and other tools they bundle with it!

Ubuntu is really great, I actually have it on this computer as a second OS, and it's really awsome. Try it out I think you'll like it.
