There is a lot of truth to this.  I have used Fedora once, where I simply
could not get touch screens to work with Debian.  Fedora just went in and
worked at once, its more up to date.

Two things about beginners.  If they are going to have stable usage, then
Debian is fine, because what I learned is, they will find systems admin
hard, but they will never do it.  All your questions will be about the
applications they are using.

If you want to give them easy admin, there is nothing to beat the Mandriva
derived control centres, which is what Mageia & PCLiinux give.  

But the thing is, for stablity, what you need is rolling release and
occasional well tested major upgrades.  That's Debian.  There is a reason
the Ubuntu derivatives are moviing to Debian based.  Mint, Warren Woodford
