eOS or xubuntu.
Both have logical interfaces and very nice themes.

I'm a former Win 7 user. I've used Windows all my life. I've had a rather easy time adapting to Mint 15. I like the Xfce or Cinnamon DE best.

With Xfce, I'm using the dusk appearance with gargi medium fonts and medium hinting. I'm still experimenting with things like transparency.

As far as gaming goes, I'm primarily a fantasy/RPG nerd. I was able to get Skyrim up and running fine with Steam by using the below guide. I'll be trying more soon. I'm using a GTX 660 with the 313.30 nVidia driver.

Other games this fellow has tested:

Learning the terminal commands isn't difficult or frustrating unless you try to do it all at once, or believe you're going to master it in one sitting. Most people who aren't familiar with Linux aren't going to be able to do that. I've been taking my time and easing into it.

Currently, I don't have Windows on any of my computers or laptops. Obviously, if you want to play something like BF 4, that's not an option.

We are both used to Windows and OSX. I have dabbled with Linux before myself, but of course the main turnoff for myself is lack of Adobe support and gaming has yet to really get to where it needs to be, but I hope Valve with Steam Linux and Steam Machine changes that.

And as far as Adobe goes, they simply don't have any good competition for the likes of Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, etc.
