Which Linux Distros to try before "the switch"?

Discussions, problem solving, and tips and trick for operating systems go here. Windows, Mac, and Linux are ok. If you want to fight or put down an OS go to The Hundred Year War Forum. It will not be tolerated here. Make sure to post what OS is being discussed in the title of your post.

I finally got one of those distros to boot up. So I thought. :?

Mageia 4 KDE

Gets all the way to desktop selections: location, language, keyboards, etc..

The screen shows the Nvidia logo. Then I get the message:

"Failed to wait for Plymouth Boot Screen to Quit"

What went wrong, and can I fix it?

I tried this one again. This time it loaded to desktop. :)

I was able to test out a video on my system through "Dragon Player".

Video was playing fine, but no audio. :(


Kubuntu 13.10 gets to the following message then seems to hang:

"Booting without full network configuration"

PC LinuxOS seems to load, but hangs at the load screen. :?

What went wrong with those, two and can I fix it? :)
