	There is no best, try a couple that intrigue you, see how you take to it and 
what it does for you.  I'm an OpenSuse guy myself(we're all on 11.2 here), and 
Ubuntu is obviously very popular.  Centos is pretty solid but arguably a 
little less of a desktop experience.

	A big part of it is how long you want to invest in trying them out.  If 
you're in a rush and had a good experience with Ubuntu, it's probably best to 
stick with what you know.  Not everyone needs to be a hacker.  :)
