[svlug] Suggestion for dist to use on dual-boot system

There seems to be a big following behind Ubuntu, I'm not sure why. I
particularly don't like the way the desktop looks ;-)
Ok, so it may be easy to install, I can't say installing Red Hat was hard
for me, but maybe I've always had well-supported hardware.

I had used Red Hat before Fedora, Mandrake (whatever happened to this?), and
Suse (is this still popular?).
It's been many years since I've used Linux at work, and have recently been
required to use it again in my current job.

I'd like to install it in a dual-boot setup with Windows XP on my laptop,
and would like to get some ideas as to what is the most stable, popular
dists these days.

One option is to use it in a VM with Vmware, but I also would like to try
setting up a dedicated partition, just for practice , if anything.
