+1 for Mageia as a friendly entry-point to desktop Linux. I used it's forerunners--Mandrake and Mandriva--for a while before settling on my current distro of choice (Mint+Cinnamon).

Likewise, CentOS is a good choice for a server-like environment where it's based off Redhat Enterprise Linux. (RHEL powers the majority of the Linux servers at my workplace.)
