There are a quite a few linux and BSD distros that support the Rasp Pi architecture.  Here is a list of them.  You can also make a nice home server with a raspberry-pi board.  Here is the instructions on how to do it.  This is on my list to do one of these days.

I've been playing with Linux since college, 15 years? it's certainly come along way. I usually direct people to Ubuntu, one of the LTS ( long term support ) versions,

Once they play with the live boot for a bit so it doesn't touch their HD , they usually end up installing it.

Ended up doing a lot of systems over when the windows xp support ended.
