Ditto to Linux Mint LTS. Don't forget to install the ssh-server and x11vnc for remote management. :) I replaced WinXP on my Dad's computer with LM and forgot to install the ssh server since it isn't installed by default; I was accustomed to RH distros and assumed ssh-server was installed by default.

Install Linux Mint 13 LTS. For remote administration, install SSH server & x11vnc, and forward SSH port to the LM13 machine. Done! I did this for my Dad and have had no complaints; he has Firefox, Chromium, LibreOffice and his DropBox contents. I log in on occasion and perform an "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade" to update his box.

Work without a vision is slavery, Vision without work is a pipe dream, But vision with work is the hope of the world.
