    For desktop use I'd recommend Ubuntu. For server use, I'd recommend debian.

    i've tried Ubuntu desktop already but it's not complete enough :s
    maybe something else ?

    Why is it not complete enough? What is missing?

    i can't play mp3, wma,... files and to install the codecs it's too difficult
    i must have a distribution that is complete enough so i can get to know linux and i don't put too much time into codecs and all...
