I recommend PCLinuxOS to anyone who wants to "check out" a linux..
especially those who have had varying experiences in the past.

Great hardware detection, and all the various apps and doodads an
interested user would want.

If you want to make sure it'll work with your stuff.. burn off the
iso, boot from it.. 100% of what you get when you boot into the livecd
is what you get when you install it.


For the techs in the audience.. it's so trivial to remaster that I
took a bit of time and wrapped up a basic firewall with it:
(the firewall itself isn't available for download right now, as my
setup is in an inbetween state..)

Being able to "back up" my setup into a liveboot cd is pretty awesome.  =)
