How'd it go?

Another vote for Ubuntu by the way. :-) It's my primary choice of an OS.

Ubuntu for me as well.^^
I use KDE as my GUI. So that makes it Kubuntu.

I did not know about Zorin OS. Looks like a better version of windows.
I'll check it out.

Zorin is pretty nice. I didn't do much besides load it on an old PC and poke around a bit. It seems to be a nice blend of Ubuntu (which I know nothing about) and Windows. It'd be a nice in-between for someone who wants to make the switch I think (it might even just be a nice one to stick with). It seemed to have all the stuff from Ubuntu that I don't understand (like using sudo commands) as well as the same general layout of Windows. I don't think you'd need to use any of the command line stuff but could if you wanted to.

Overall, I like it much better than any of the other free OS's I've looked at.
Don't take life too seriously -- no one gets out alive. Plus, who wants to arrive to the hereafter in pristine condition wearing a suit and tie?
I want to slide in sideways, worn out, used up, hair a mess, clothes tattered, & screaming, "Whooo! What a ride!"

I'd go with Linux. The choice of distro is up to you and your experience. If you're new to Linux go with Ubuntu. If not take a look at some other distros
