Currently, I'm running windows XP, and Mac OSX on my Macbook Pro. I tried running Linux Fedora 6 but Mac OSX is super easy to use and I've been using Windows since diapers, so it was difficult for me to trouble-shoot Fedora.

I'm currently studying programming (in case it's relevant: I plan to be using HTML, CSS, javascript, PHP, MySQL and soon, C++ to some degree). I do some graphics work, but mostly on my Mac software. I logged on to a website that is supposed to tell you what version of Linux would work best for you ( and it recommended Mandriva (formerly Mandrake). I'm hoping to have a better experience than last time. The interface I was looking at is Back Track 1.0. Again, I'm just beginning on Linux. Can anyone tell me if this is a good choice, or recommend a good graphical interface?
