never even heard about it but I googled around and at least to me it doesn't seem that great.

So I'd recommend you to try some other distro, there is ubuntu, kubuntu, suse and many other good distros out there for free.

I did "try" Ubuntu but it's very confusing for a first time user like me.That's why I'm looking for smth closer to XP...
I took a glimpse at Linux XP 2006 and it is not that great but they claim the new 2008 is and at a price of $8 I'll just give it a shot...
It's better than paying $100 for XP..

im not being funny, but linux doesnt get easier than ubuntu. if you want to mess about installing more complicated stuff then yea you will have to use the terminal. im a linux n00b but i can use it pretty well, just like xp with a different gui.
if you really want something thats just like xp then yea go for it. i dont know much about it but havent heard anything bad
