I'd recomend either of those two, I'm told that mandrake is easiest to use, although I find Fedora easiest to use.
I definitly wouldn't ercomend GUN/Debian to a new linux user.

hey everyone, I just installed Mandrake Linux. I chose to do this before reinstalling windows after a virus problem. It's pretty cool but, not as user friendly. I had trouble setting up an internet connection, so I have windows back on, at least until I learn a bit more.

a lot of people come to linux thinking they want to run all their old software like mirc, IE, msn messenger and photoshop.

after a while they come around to realising irssi, mozilla offspring, gaim etc and the gimp are just as good (and often better).

Matter of hunting, and having the ass to configure it all.
