I had considered Debian, but I've always heard that it's for advanced linux users.
If you are not so advanced, perhaps try Mepis linux, based on debian but really simple to install and use, ive given it to lots of people instead of windows. Its hardware support is great, even automatically configured my builtin intel 200BG laptop wifi chip http://www.mepis.org
Its a live cd and very easily installable. I'm running it (Version 3.3) on two desktops and three laptops at the moment and finding it very well configured and reliable. Plus it's debian so you can apt-get with synaptic (graphical package manager for installing packages from the debian repositories) which helps to keep your system continually up to date with a couple of clicks.
I was quite 'scared' of trying debian, but since i switched , i haven't looked back to any non-debian based distribution (except occasionally to slackware :-)).
