I am using SuSe 9.2 and, even if it is not OS X  ^_^  it works well. 
KDE 3.3 is stable. All my Windows partitions were automatically 
mounted. Setting up a dual-boot is easy... You just have to install a 
few packages to support DVD playing and some video cards.

DVD support: http://cambuca.ldhs.cetuc.puc-rio.br/xine/

MPlayer & codecs:
	1 ? lame?: http://packman.links2linux.org/?action=128
	2 ? Win32?: http://packman.links2linux.org/?action=046
	3 ? Mplayer?: http://packman.links2linux.org/?action=128
	4 ? plugin Mozilla?: http://packman.links2linux.org/?action=319

I have also compiled Firefox 1.0, Firestarter, Ghostscript 8.50, Gimp 
2.2.1 and Scribus 1.2.1 ? to name a few ? without a single problem.

IMHO SuSE 9.2 is the best (i.e. easy and stable) Linux distribution and 
a very good desktop solution (even if one needs to switch to Windows 
for gaming or using more programs). #1 OS X, #2 SuSE, #3 Windows :-)
