Ubuntu would probably work well. You might consider Mint, it comes with 
the multimedia codecs so it requires little or no fiddling. I use their 
KDE version. They also have an LMDE desktop which is Debian based and 
their own Cinnamon desktop which is based on Gnome but apparently looks 
more like Gnome2 which some people like. I haven't used these last 2.
