I think the general conscences from this little thread was to go with two
computers. My next question is which flavour is the best to run with. Here
are my requirements:

I do a lot of ColdFusion development and so need a platform which CF will
run on. (Will it run on Mandrake?) I have heard a lot of good things about
Mandrake, but RedHat seems to be the leader when it comes to Linux. So,
which one should I choose? I have also looked at the two flavours of gui and
think I prefer KDE so, on which flavour does this work best?

Which one, which one, which one?

If you are
looking for a good linux distro for home use, I'd suggest Mandrake.  Its a
brainer to install and use.  Mandrake has done a good job in making a
distribution for those new to Linux.  The only area where Linux is lagging
in the gaming dept.   Not a whole lot of REALLY good games like you get
the Win platform.  Other than that, I'm happy and will probably never go
to M$.  YMMV.
