    RED HAT will be a good choice and as of now the latest version is 7.2..further you get a lot of books specifically for red hat..that goes for other flavours aswell..but RED HAT is my favourite

    You have never used linux before, so I suggest one of the large brands such as Mandrake, Red Hat or SuSe. These offer the easiest installs(often the hardest part of linux). They also have very good technical support. If you have any more questions concerning linux, feel free to come to irc.antionline.com where the linux pros play. Oh and Welcome to the darkside.

    If you take the time to look at old posts, you will see this has been asked quite a bit. General overview though:

    Newbie: Redhat or Suse (if you want a lot of programs in one package, use suse) Some people will recomend Mandrake, but Mandrake and Redhat are the same thing, just a different installer basically.
    Some Experience: Debian/Gnu
    Linux Guru: Slackware.

    The choice of distrubution is a matter of taste I like Debian, Slackware
    Mandrake myself if you want ease of use you might want to try lycoris
