I have tried many Linux OS's (Ubuntu being one) and always gone back to XP. They are great if you like playing!!! Its good to have one as a secondary system, all the software is free and there are hardly any virus attacks on Linux systems either. This is a list of Linux based OS distributions, there are tons of them!!!!!!!!!!!! and all free!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Linux distro's, although mostly brilliant, do take some getting used to.

As ABOC suggested, sticking it on an old machine or setting up a dual boot system is the way to go (at least to start with)...

tbh i only got this operating system yesterday when i rebuilt my comp yesterday and for some reason i find it much more enjoyable to use already just for the fact it dont muck up and take a century to open up anything on it

linux OS's are loads better for slower machines, when you put one on a powerful PC it goes at the speed of a Gazelle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And its fun trying something new, don't you reckon TDKing???????????!!
