I went with Linux Mint simply because I didn't (and still don't) know that much about Linux and was advised it was one of the more straightforward (read: easier) distros for those first transitioning from Windows. Everything pretty much worked straight up and really didn't need tweaking, though now that I've been using it for a few years, I've gotten more brave with regards to experimenting.
I have Ubuntu Netbook Remix on my netbook and it's very similar, though some things are different. Also, very little tweaking necessary and worked pretty much straight from download (though I can't figure out how to get Java to run) but in any case... that is beyond this thread. Lol.
Either distros are very easy to get used to for Linux beginners (IMHO) can't go wrong with either choice ...
