Is Linux Ubuntu really worth it?
Ok so I am a Windows user for almost my whole computer using life! Ok my whole computer using life. I have no experience with linux or any other open source OS or for that matter the MAC OS-X; except for the testing out I did in an Apple store.
I would like to though since I am still saving up some money for a MacBook Pro
to try out Linux Ubuntu! I did try though once a Linux distro, called Linux Mandriva but itw as so hard for me to use it and there was almost no support for it in like fan forums! So I quit it and went back to Windows then I decided on a Mac PC but still collecting Money!
Is Ubuntu easy to use to learn and does it have a lot of support! I have already seen that it can be changed to look like a Mac OS, which in my opinion is awesome!
Ok so lets start of with my PC specs:
Processor: Intel Celeron 2.80 GHz
RAM: 512 MB
Hard Drive: 80 GB (thinking of splitting into another partition to use with Linux!)
Graphics Card: 128MB nVidia GeForce FX 5200
Thanks for the help!

Ok hey its me again! I just visited their website, I am looking at both Ubuntu and Xubuntu! Xubuntu seems to be something different but says that it makes your hardware faster thus the OS is at a better performance! Which is better, regular Ubuntu or Xubuntu?
