ubutu is great.
i started my linux experirance 1 month ago.
first i treid fedora 4 then 3. both were bloated and slow.both took 3 hours 
to install.
cext i treied ubutu.
its easirer faster and heck better looking too.
try it.

ps. for security you might want to install ubuntu on a second hdd and wirte 
the boot loader 
to the second hdd. thats how i first treid out linux without damaging my 
windows partition.
now i have been winodws free for 3 whole days.
