What is the best "starter" version of Linux?

For someone who has never used Linux before, which distro is easiest to learn?

I think Elementary OS is one of the best

Someone that is moving to Linux from Windows might also like Zorin OS, which has a UI that is very close to Windows 7. I would probably go with either Ubuntu or Mint though - if I wanted a Windows interface, I would stick with Windows.

There are quite a few that are good for newbies these days, but Linux Mint 14 is probably the best.

See this review of Linux Mint 14 on the Desktop Linux Reviews blog:

The best Linux distro and most user friendly is Ubuntu. Ubuntu is so simple that even a newcomer to computers could get a handle on it in a very short time.
