Have You Tried Ubuntu 9.04?
Ubuntu is one of the most user-friendly Linux operating systems. If you have an older PC that you don't really need, you may want to install this free operating system and take it for a test spin. Why? I think it's beneficial to gain experience using multiple operating systems. You become a better computer user if you've played around with the different versions of Microsoft Windows (including XP, Vista, and now Windows 7). Plus, if you know how to navigate the Mac OS X, then you're in an even better position to help with troubleshooting and other technical problems.
Ubuntu is free and it also comes with many applications such as a web browser, presentation, document and spreadsheet software, instant messaging, and more. Why not take Linux for a spin? One of the nice things about Ubuntu is that you can install the operating system within Microsoft Windows (this is referred to as the Wubi installer). If you use the Wubi installer, then you'll end up with a dual-boot system.
