Debian and Ubuntu are a good choice for a stable Linux distro for daily use. Arch is stable and also much more customizable.

Mint is a good choice for a newcomer, it is Ubuntu-based, very stable and user friendly.

If you are looking for a distro not based on Debian, Fedora is a great choice. It is great to familiarize a user with RedHat and CentOS, and is quite popular. Apparently Linus Torvalds, the creator of the Linux kernel, uses Fedora daily.
