Default What should I suggest my Aunt?


My aunt (who has been a Windows user ever) asked me for Linux. I myself being new, told her Ubuntu and after a couple of days she asks me to please suggest her about one of following:

1) PCLinuxOS
2) openSUSE

3) Ubuntu
4) Linux Mint

I suggested Ubuntu but she just asked me a brief review (if I could). What she wants is just the general works she was doing in Windows but of more concern - stability as once she installs she would not go for a change in future and then starting learning that one flavor. I know for sure PCLinuxOS and Linux Mint are easy for beginners (read and knew) but Ubuntu and openSuse could be of more than just having fun! They could (what I guess) provide to become a techie-wizard from a non-techie wizard.

I would be thankful if you can just let me know anything of the great experiences people here are having.

Two atoms are walking along. Suddenly, one stops. The other says, "What's

wrong?" "I've lost an electron." "Are you sure?" "I'm positive!"
