It's been a while but I did try Mandriva/Mandrake before I settled on
SuSE. I can't say just exactly why but I didn't like it very much. I
tried a live CD of a "special" Ubuntu release and it seemed ok, but it
wasn't "Kubuntu". Fedora I've never messed with at all.

SimplyMEPIS was what re-ignited my thoughts of using Linux. That was
somewhere back about version 3 something. I liked it, but
................ Right now I have about 94% of 6.0* downloaded, but all
I could find was a i386 download. Not to sure how that is going to work
out. On the web site they talk about an x86-64 version but I didn't see
it on a mirror. Only time will tell.

PCLinux seems like another fair-to-middlin release. I didn't play with
it very long but it seemed to work just fine. There's a local computer
store that recommends it for Microsofties, that want something better,
to start out with. They preload it on some of their systems. Walk in,
walk out with a preloded Linux box.
