    I suggest Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat (just released 10/10/10). I believe it is the easiest to learn, and has the most community support.

    See http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download for download and installation instructions.

    Enjoy!

    Well....since you're posting in the "Ubuntu" forum; I would suggest..hrmm... Ubuntu!

    ...plz suggest me the best destro...
    That, it self, is a matter of so much debate. Nevertheless, I would use these rule: "The bigger the community -> the better the support -> more fun!". Then, Ubuntu is indeed a very good choice.

    Before install:
    I would recommend read this before installing: Before Installing Ubuntu..

    Getting Ubuntu:
    You have to chose which version and the install method. Most people download an CD ISO image, burn it and use the CD to install Ubuntu. Get it here: Get Ubuntu Desktop Edition.

    Installation:
    Check this tutorial: Installing Ubuntu.

    Regards.

    I had the same problem 3 years ago,

    Today I will recommended for You Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (with gnome desktop) and support for 3 years or KUbuntu 10.04 LTS (with KDE). IMHO ubuntu 10.10 is to fresh for newbie.

    http://releases.ubuntu.com/lucid/

    And codes for movies and mp3 from
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats

    On dayliy basis I use:

    XP, Ubuntu 10.04 (with deb package) and Fedora 12 (with rpm packgage repo),
    and I am happy with it.

    Ps, One OS at the time, of courese.

    True.

    But if you really want to learn about the guts, Gentoo is up there.

    FreeBSD isn't actually that bad, but it's definitely a learning experience.
