Sorry everyone; I changed the composition settings on my webmail client.

Anyway, I agree that LTS distros are the best suggestion, especially for 
people who don't want a lot of hang-ups, just an OS that's open source 
and that _works_.  I think many Windows users shy away from Linux for 
fear they'll have problems. And in fact, many distros do have small bugs 
that can become big bugs if you need the PC for work, deadlines, etc.

Personally, I enjoy trying new distros. Every now and then I install a 
new Linux version to see how it performs. But not everyone has that 
curiosity and the free time to learn to use them.
