Can anybody here recommend a decent, stable, and easy-to-use Linux distro? (Assuming there is one, I have no idea.) Like... Easy for an idiot to use. The idiot's Linux. I don't consider myself an idiot, but considering I've tried a few distros and couldn't get them to do half of what I wanted for the *life of me*, I'm hoping somebody has a suggestion.
Preferably, if at all possible, something that would take to my Linksys Wireless USB Adapter without too much trouble. Fedora gave me no end of trouble when I tried getting it to even acknowledge its existence.
Please, keep in mind: My knowledge of Linux is just enough to grep, use GDB, and some other basic functions. I have no idea what I'm doing.
Edit: All I really want to do is run my code through Valgrind. When I tried to do this with Fedora, well... Yeah, I couldn't even get the code to compile. It might have been how I got the code to the drive that had Fedora on it, which was using Ext2fs or something like that under Windows XP. If you've got any advice on a better way to do that, by all means, share that as well.
