I ask this honestly and not with sarcasm, can you direct me to a Linux distro that:

1) Can be installed from 1 CD.
2) Can be installed by the "average Windows user" without a problem.
3) Provides everything required for daily work/play with an intutive, usable     
4) Can be run on both PCs and Macs (and hopefully other processors as well like 
5) Is up to date with current open source releases.

I haven't found one yet that meets all of these criteria--except Ubuntu.

Lindows/Linspire is out - No PPC support
SuSe is out - Dropped PPC support for all current and future releases
Mandrake is out - PPC distro is a full point version behind i386 distro
vanilla Debian is out - Could not be installed by the "average Windows user"

I would truly love to find another one so I could try it out.
