9 out of 10 Gremlinzzz recommend Xubuntu.
Downloading a live system called Tails anyone tried it?
If you want something decent and stable give openSUSE 12.2 a shot
Well decent and stable is subjective as is all Linux to everyone.
The Linux experience will be based on Users personality more than anything followed by knowledge then hardware and of course murphys law.
personally i think there should be a distro called YMMV, it would solve a lot of complaints

You could try installing Ubuntu 12.04 LTS or 12.10 and installing MATE or Cinnamon on that and using either one of those DEs instead of Unity, and there's also Xubuntu 12.04 LTS or 12.10, Lubuntu 12.10, or Kubuntu 12.04 or 12.10 to choose from.
Could also give Arch or Slackware a shot if you got the time, skills, and patience, and Fedora 17 LXDE or KDE's a good candidate too, and you can install Cinnamon on it, and Fedora 18 will offer an official MATE spin, and an official Cinnamon spin, I think.
There's also straight-up Debian, Crunchbang, or LMDE to try as well.
