Which Linux?

redhat.com | Which Red Hat Linux is Right For You?

A chart from Redhat on which version you should be running. Unless you are an enterprise customer, you probably want to use Fedora.

The thing is, Fedora seems to be going completely bleeding edge, much like what Rawhide used to be. So, what is the correct free distro for newbies these days?

Debian, from what I understand, since I have not used it a ton is much more developer oriented. Gentoo stays kind of bleeding edge and the whole concept of having to re-compile each package would scare most newbies away. SUSE seems to be up in the air right now with the Novell purchase. So, is Mandrake the way to go for newbies? I'm not really sure and would like to hear what other people have to say.
