I can't give you the most educated answer, but I think many would point you to Knoppix (its a live CD) or Mandrake.

You can sometimes find one or the other bundled with a Linux Magazine at the newstand.

Both have pretty wide support for hardware.

Hmmm...I am not familiar with any companies that actually use Linux on the desktop...at least in large-scale

I would guess WinXP...

My company uses SuSE and Solaris on the server-side

However, I use Gentoo and RedHat

I think most companies use Redhat (For home users, I guess that would be Fedora). Second would probably be SuSe.

Personally, I like Ubuntu. It's based on Debian Linux (another popular distro).
