    Non-Debian based distros

    Having used Debian and/or Ubuntu since about 2001, Ive never delved into a non-Debian based distro. What are the most user friendly distros? (i.e. installing flash, multimedia codecs and a quick overall learning curve)

    Problematic, though, that it doesn't yet support you keyboard's "c" key.

    The only non-Debian based distros I have used is Suse 6.4 and OpenSuse 11. Suse 6.4 was pre-Novell and it truly sucked and I was looking at OpenSuse 11 as an alternative to Ubuntu and I just didn't get on with it. Actually I did have a spell with Linpus Lispire Lite, my Acer A150 shipped with it. Well, I say I had a spell with it, it was about 20 minutes before I said b*ll*cks to this and installed UNR.

    i suggest Fedora; new version (12) should be out on 10th of november.
    it's really nice distro, although yum (its package manager) is a bit slow.
    Also OpenSUSE is nice. And if you dare, you can try PLD ;P

    Hm... PCLinuxOS? OpenSuse? Anything KDE based - they tend to be easier for newbies.
