Hey Bruce,
Ubuntu is a pretty popular distribution with a great desktop environment plus a 
bunch of cybers already use it. It's a while since I've used it but I'd 
definitely recommend it.

Fedora is also worth taking a look at. I hear it's friendlier since Gnome 3.0 
desktop got included from Fedora 15. (though I've used 13 and 14 only).

I'd also put Mint on the list. I've never used it and I don't thinkI've been in 
a cyber running Mint. But I hear it's pretty good.

I'll be meeting up with a couple of guys - end of January - interested in 
setting up an Open Cyber Café Challenge in Kenya and Linux distros will 
probably be in our agenda; it would be great if you could drop by.
