Beginners should always start with a Linux that people around them are using. If they have friends using Red Hat, they should use Red Hat. If they have a local users' group with lots of Ubuntu users, they should use Ubuntu.

One stops being a beginner when one starts to experiment with other distributions, considering them on their own merits.

There are no "Advanced" Linux distributions, there are only general and specialized distributions.

This is my basic approach as well, though I've always suggested finding a Linux mentor from the get-go. User groups are always a good place to find that kind of support, but also work colleagues who are trying to motivate more linux use, as are your instructors for computer using tasks where linux is helpful and similar contacts.
