    What disto is well supported, has plenty of software, and a good looking gui? I once used Ubuntu and loved it, but they started removing features that made it way to simple.

    You can choose the standard ubuntu desktop
    from the session selector on the login screen
    instead of having to use the unity interface.

    Depends on what you like. Take a look at Linux Mint, Fedora, Open Suse, and Debian.

    Knoppix all the way. The DVD has over 9 GB's of apps on it. It is designed to run live, but can easily be installed to the hard drive. More apps that you can shake a stick at.

    I recommend you to install ubuntu 12 or any latter. Which has easy user interface and lots of apps
