I do agree with that, but...
I'm sorry to say, but in my experience so far, the only distro that
makes a good impression to newcomers (from the windoze world) is
Xandros. My brother had that installed and I tried to convince him to
switch away from the dark side and try Kubuntu. It would freeze
somewhere in the middle of loading KDE, live or installed! And when I
tried to disable X and start gradually, I hit upon the sudo setup
typical to (K)Ubuntu, which I had no idea about, so I had to give up.
Back home I installed it on my laptop. After a month Kubuntu's /
partition made a nice /home for my unstable when I needed more space ;)
and my brother is still using Xandros :(
My point is, if you're willing (or even like) to tinker with your
computer start with stable and gradually move up to testing or
unstable. If not, I have to recommend Xandros :(
(K)Ubuntu is trying to be a friendly and stable distro, but it is not
as newcomer friendly as Xandros and not as stable as Debian.

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
