Ubuntu, without a doubt; installs in less than 1 hour, works right out the box.
Lots of specific apps.
A tremendous community to support you.
I gave up on Gentoo ... I had to get that box running. However, Gentoo has probably more power, good if you have the time to tinker - sorry, optimize :-). You can try Ubuntu with the live CD, does not install anything on your disk.
Have fun !!!
