Can anyone recommend the best distro of Linux for using as my main Bitcoin machine?

Why not use windows?

On-topic: Thanks, but will most likely be using blockchain.info

Encrypting your wallet & holding the coins yourself indeed seems the best. Just don't forget to make a few (encrypted) backups!

This is simple, very nice and simple. Another way (with winblows [smoke]) is to install linux and automate another os (windows or something) which flicks on like most library systems do. Similar concept - no wallet.dat to steal because none was really saved - once you log off of the instance of the second system what you did before is toast.

Very good option to secure your wallet!

Send me some Bitcent, if you like my comments!

Presumably, with deterministic wallets things change slightly? I mean, in that case you don't need to take periodic backups of your wallet - just keep the root key safe and off any internet connected device. Right?

(Of course, you still need to keep your actual wallet(s) secure, just that you don't have to worry about backup or losing your coins to the same degree, or have I got this all wrong...)

Yes, it does. The solution is just to keep private keys off the computer. Transaction signing devices like  Trezor solves this in user-friendly way...

I didn't know that you needed to encrypt your wallet, so this definitely helped me understand that I need to take more security measures!

Funny read though, funny yet serious? Yet not so serious at the same time!

You don't have to encrypt your wallet, but if you don't, you'd best be very careful nobody else grabs hold of your wallet.dat or any medium storing it. If your live system is somehow infected with keylogger-equipped bitcoin-stealing malware, the encryption will not protect you anyway.

Wallet encryption is nonetheless very much advisable - just make sure not to forget the password, else the funds are gone!

Depends if it's going to be used as anything else really? Otherwise keep it small and simple. DSL or Arch will do.

Are you running it from a Live CD? If so and you want to use more than basic features try something with greater out of the box driver support like Ubuntu/Debian.

Close the windows, you're letting all of the volume out!!!
