I agree with Tim that first of all you should make up your mind about
the intended use of your system. I have experience with SUSE when
OpenSUSE did not yet exist. I had to buy a new version every year or
so. Moreover it turned out to be very difficult to install newer
software, because the libraries were becoming too old.
Then I decided to install Debian. I chose the 'testing' distribution.
Now I have it two years running and I am very satisfied. 'Testing' is
continuously updated, so you have very recent software. Moreover, the
updating is a continuous process, so you never have to reinstall your
system. Moreover, in 'testing' you have very many packages, which can
be installed with 'synaptic', a graphical front end to 'apt'.
During the last two years I have experience very few serious problems
I use Debian 'testing' as a desktop system for my own personal use. Of
course, if you are using your system in a production environment you
should choose 'stable' in stead of 'testing'.
Installing Debian is very easy: just download a CD for a net install
and then install your system from the net.
