I've just read (ok, now it's over 3 months ago) that Google Public DNS now supports DNSSEC (source).
I was curious what I currently use on my Linux Mint 14 machine. The relevant file is /etc/resolv.conf:
nameserver 127.0.1.1 # OpenDNS Fallback (configured by Linux Mint in /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/tail). nameserver 18.104.22.168 nameserver 22.214.171.124
A programm called namebench checks how fast several DNS configurations would be for you.
