Do you guys think that all noobs should have a hardtail?

Agree, depends on how far your going to take the sport. Weekends on the bike path, or getting into some sweet singletrack with technical downhills. If you plan on mountain biking frequently on technical trails a DS may be the way to go.
I have a hardtail with an adjustable front shock I can lock out on the uphills. I probably ride fully rigid 60% of the time. Would be nice occassionally to have a DS for some of the hairy downhill sections, but not willing to add the extra weight or lose the energy from the rear shock bounce, although I realize they have come quite a long way with rear shock technology.
