You should always stick to the later versions in my opinion so you have more updated packages. The different linux packages are just different distributions that are wrapped around a linux kernal that all share the same code.

Some distributions modify the kernel a bit, others just use the same kernel. Different distributions offer different packages and ways of configuring the computer.

There are so many distributions to pick from that its hard to find one that fits your needs. Some people like gentoo, others like mandrake, others like redhat or its successor fedora.

Unfortunately X-windows in linux can be a bit demanding so it may not be the fastest out there.
