Fedora core, the free version of desktop redhat, is better in my opinion.

Mint is nice both ubuntu and mint are really easy to install and use. Mint is based on Ubuntu but defaults to a more windows-like desktop. haven't tried fedora so I can't really comment on it.

Thanks little egypt I Think i might go with ubuntu.Now I know i can get ubuntu for free from their website but it will take 6-10 weeks to get here so i might just buy it for 6 bucks here on trademe.

Http://ftp.citylink.co.nz/ubuntu-releases/intrepid You can download it from the NZ mirror for free, assuming your not on dialup. Even then just leave it downloading over night and you'll get it eventually.

Being a Debian fanboi I would say Ubuntu, but IMO it's probably much of a muchness, i.e. won't make much difference. I have tried fedora before and apart from taking ages to install (fedora9) it went pretty well. Also IMO you won't know until you try, so try both and let us know what you think :o)

Fedora 10 is out and is really simple to use, there is even a live cd version, download the dvd version i recomend
