I'm a major Debian fan, i use it for absolutely everything I can, but it doens't work too well with my current laptop and desktop hardware as most of it is only a year old. Ubuntu however, works extremely well with newer hardware and multiple screens. My vote goes to Ubuntu 13.04 for a desktop. *13.10 :)

Which is the easiest to use? It also needs to be able to be installed on a CPU that does not do PAE. And the machine has only 512MB RAM.

Easy to use and only 512MB RAM - Crunchbang Linux would be my choice.
Crunchbang is based on a slim Debian install and uses the lightweight Openbox window manager instead of one of the more bloated, mainstream desktop environments.

FYI I'm running and Openbox/Arch linux install on my 1GB RAM Atom netbook and am very happy with the responsiveness.
Everyone's entitled to my opinion! I've got the T-Shirt to prove it.

the pae bit is the issue here. Is it fake pae or no pae?
