My favorite Linux distro is Android. Wait, does that count? ;)

I'll second that. It's the only one that has actually gotten anywhere with the non-techies.

I'm not really sure where you want to draw the line when discussing "Linux distros", but if we're including non-GNU OSs like Android then surely we have to include all embedded Linux OSs too. Thus I'd argue that TomTom was the first Linux distro to be adopted by non-techies. :p
