To answer that question, I would need to know what
problem you are trying to solve.

<debian plug>
If you are looking to learn linux and you must use a
linux distribution, then I would recommend Debian
GNU/Linux over any other distribution.

If you're looking to create a production server, then I'd
recommend Debian running a XFS filesystem[1] over any
other linux distribution and filesystem combination. 
</debian plug>

IMO, if you're looking for a distribution that would allow
for a non-computer enthusiast to easily install linux,
then Mandrake or RedHat would suffice.
