Mint is nice. Xubuntu as well...lightweight, without sacrificing functionality.

Xubuntu has errors, like losing it's Gnome bars. I prefer Ubuntu.

I dual boot Ubuntu 10.04 with Win 7 and haven't had any problems yet... except when I reinstalled Win 7 I lost my dual capabilities.

I've got Win7 Ultimate x64, WinXP Pro SP3, and Ubuntu 10.4 x64. I love the neat visual effects Ubuntu has.

I agree about the visual effects. I can distract myself for a good 30 minutes playing with dual monitors and the effect.

Different distros are better at different jobs - there's no one distro I'd choose for anything. Generally it's a combination of Ubuntu if I want to get something up and running quickly, Gentoo if I want a highly customised install, debian if I want a very lightweight, stable install and DSL if I'm installing it on a machine old enough that nothing else will ever work.

I usually use an ubuntu derivative, but PCLinuxOS isn't bad either.
