My first Linux experience was with Caldera OpenLinux.  After a year or so of 
that, I moved to Debian Hamm or Slink and I can't imagine going back to an 
rpm-based distribution.

If you like the Debian packaging system but think Debian is for "techies", I 
suggest you try Xandros, Linspire, or Freespire.  Freespire might be 
too "techy" but you might want to try it anyway and it is available at no 
cost.  If you want a Linux that works "out of the box", Linspire and Xandros 
are very good Debianish distros.
