I would recommend PCLinuxOS. Its based on mandrake, and it comes with kde as default desktop. Its a rolling release which means as long as you install the updates, you will always have the current version. Its designers have pretty much the same goal. A ready to use out of the box Linux distro that plays all the media formats and ready for flash.arjay wrote:If a newbie friend of yours wanted to try linux and mint was not available, what would you give him (must be kde, and something he can then stay with for a good while)?
"PC" stands for "Point and Click"
Its actually easier than mint. Its what I started out on.
Mint is a tad bit more complicated.
