Well it's not as easy to work with as many of the Linux distros, for instance you have only the x-window gui to start with, a very rudimentary gui, and you have to choose a GUI you like, download and install it to get anything like a windows type environment. In other words you have to do a lot of stuff "by hand" to get what you want.

Of course it's free, so you can download it, burn it to disk and try it to your hearts content.

I'm very happy with Red Hat Fedora Core 6 myself, it's a very easy install, comes with a lot of features and I think is a bit more professional than some of the other distros.
