Linux Distros

I've been strongly considering moving back to linux again, and was reading on Distro Watch that Redhat now charges for package updates?
Anyways... what is the "best" distro these days? I was thinking Suse, Mandrake or Redhat... so now I just want opinions from the few linux users that are on this site.

Redhat doesnt charge if you demo. You just have to answer a short 5 or 6 question survey every 90 days per machine.

Ok.. that wasn't made very clear on Distro Watch, so I had to ask. I've used Redhat before and was the distro I liked the most.. so it was my first choice to go back to.

I like RedHat. Never messed with any other distros besides SlackWare back in the day.
