    I'd recommend openSUSE because its very easy to use and is constantly updated where as other distros are updated once or twice a year

    Xan21 - that stupidly excessive signature needs fixing ASAP

    Signatures

    1. Text-only signatures should have at most 5 lines of text.

    2. An image-only signature should be less than 50kb in size, and be at most 500 pixels wide and 200 pixels tall.

    3. If you use an animated picture in the signature, it should not be too distractive. Eg. blinking images or images with quick movement are not allowed.

    4. If you want to use both text and image in your signature the image should not be more than 500 pixels wide and 100 pixels tall, and you can use up to three lines of text.

    I personally would go with Ubuntu since it is very user-friendly.
