I have alot of friends trying to convince me to try it, I might give it a try soon and see how Ubuntu is like.

yea its cool you can try it without installing it. just go to ubuntu.com and download the iso file and burn it to a disk and you can just boot from the disk and still have your regular os

Everybody is using the system of his choice. But what was your choice and why? Maybe you know this video already, but I think, it could be true ;)

I run Ubuntu 8.04. I've been on linux for about 8 yrs now and absolutely LOVE it. (I was a mac fanboy before - never liked Microsoft)

I highly recommend Ubuntu.

I have a friend who had been bugging me for years to try Linux - I wasn't ready to give up my Mac though. I had acquired an old PC from somewhere so I decided I'd install RedHat on it (this was 9 yrs ago). I was impressed and continued to use it - but had it setup as dual boot to Windows for about a year before I realized I never actually had to boot to windows - unless I wanted to play my flight simulator.

Things began to improve slowly at first, then rapidly, and here we are 9 yrs later and I don't own or use a single Microsoft product and I'm a much more satisfied user as a result. I have total control over my PC, it restarts only when I tell it to, it is secure, 99% of the applications I run are free (I've purchased a few games), when something does go wrong, somebody has almost certainly run into the issue and has a fix for it - I don't have to wait for a patch from the OS vendor (let alone pay for it). The linux community is awesome.

If you want to give it a try without installing it, you can download the installer, burn it to CD and boot from it. Then you can play around a bit and see how it goes - it will be a limited experience of course, since it won't save anything to your disk (while running from a CD)
