I would suggest Ubuntu as good Linux distribution. As it is based on
Debian, the package system is imho incredibly good. Haven't used
Fedora, but I guess that it is a .rpm based distro which as far as I
know is not up to par with .deb. Ubuntu is also very easy to install
and is functional straight out of the box. If your curious, you could
always download the live-cd and try it out.
