Re: Whats the easiest distro for an WinXP user?
As a WinXP "Classic" desktop user at work I recommend these:
Linux Mint 13 or 14 MATE edition (13 is Long Term Support LTS, 14 is not).
Xubuntu 12.04 LTS (and I wasn't influenced by your post )
IMHO, the best for a WinXP user would be Ubuntu 10.04 LTS but it is end of life April 2013.
One big suggestion. Run them live first! Get a real good look before you install.
For the longest time, I had two Pentium II machines running at 550Mhz and 192MB ram with FreeBSD as my desktop machines and retired them to server status only when a Windows user "upgraded" and gave me their "old" box.
