So I guess my vote goes with Mint and PClinuxOS for trying.
My personal favorites are Mint, Mepis, Dreamlinux, and Puppy.
EDIT: OK,..just re-read your post,....and see that you actually are probably NOT a "newbie" to linux. Anyhow,....give Dreamlinux 3.5 a whirl. Debian Lenny based, with all the codecs, and a nice "Mackish" Xfce desktop.
I didn't know PCLOS 2009 came out
I might check out DreamLinux as well
