It comes down to personal preference. It you have the knowledge or are willing
to learn it, creating your own system provides the ultimate in customization.
An existing distro provides ease of installation and upgrading, but you have to
depend on others to build it for you. Different distros provide different
perspectives such as size, configuration utilities, speed of updates, etc.
A newbie should probably start with one of the common distros such as Ubuntu or
Fedora and develop a certain comfort level. Then with the experience gained,
explore other distros.
