If you are coming from Windows, I'd suggest Linux Mint or Ubuntu, they are both very simple to use. I am glad you are joining the Linux team,
Good luck! :D

I would suggest the same as Koodoo, both are easy and the installs should go faster than a normal Windows install. Once you get your feet wet you have a massive world of versions you can test to find the one you like the best.

Ubuntu if you want eye candy and a launcher similar to MacOs. Linux Mint if you want something simpler and faster. LUbuntu for an older computer. Can't go wrong either way.

I'd also suggest Mint, more specifically KDE. I swich distributions occasionally just to see what's out there but I've had the best luck with Mint KDE (at least with my hardware). Everything works out of the box. And KDE has wobbly windows which is pretty flashy!
