I've always found your advice useful,
and have invariable agreed with it if it came within my experience -
but your list of recommended distributions is bizarre in the extreme.
The most important question for a newbie is:
If I have a problem, will I find someone running the same system as me,
preferably on the same machine?
For that reason alone, Fedora and Debian are the obvious choices.
