Ubuntu Linux is the most simple to use Operating System available today. Most of problems for Ubuntu first-time users come from their bad habits that come from usage of only one operating system ever.
As a matter of fact, novice computer users are found to master computer skills faster using Ubuntu Linux than any other Operating System. If you don't believe it imagine how intuitive is pressing "Start" button if you want to turn off computer?
Once you find yourself master the basic usage of the Ubuntu system (that should not take more than a day or two) you will notice that you can do your work much faster and more comfortably than before. Then you will realize that there is even far more that you are able to do with your system. You can comfortably work with the predefined default settings, or you can configure your computer to fit your requirements in a level possible never before.
If you are still undecided, you should know that you can run Ubuntu operating system straight from CD (no need for installation). Since current release you can even install and uninstall Ubuntu as a normal program in your Microsoft Windows, without the need of creating partitions, removing Windows, etc.

In 2006, I decided to test the Cube Desktop in Beryl, and so I install my first Linux system, that was Mandriva. Unfornately, I was totaly lost, and no access to the Community.
After that I heard about Ubuntu. I decided to test it... and it didn't work because of my ATI graphic card.
I post a thread on the French forum of Ubuntu (http://www.ubuntu-fr.org) and in 40 minuts somebody help me.
The French Community is very active, and the Wiki is so good.
And The distribution is so easy to use. That's why I installed Ubuntu on all my computer. I become an Ubuntu addict. I update my Ubuntu to the news Alpha 5 for each version since Gutsy Gibbon :p. I joined recently the Ubuntu-party-Paris team.
That's all Folks !!!

I have been using and developing Linux for over 5 years. Kubuntu is my only source for computing. The open source capabilities of this software are truly endless. If you can imagine it you can create it. Everyday people ask me what that weird flashy cube is on my computer and I can spend hours explaining the wonders of this system. Linux is constantly being upgraded and changed, it will never stop and it will take over all other operating systems in the future.
The Linux community is amazing, if there is anything a new user doesn't know, there are thousands of more advanced users ready to answer their questions.
The addition of Compiz Window Manager creates a 3D world of magic on your desktop, or I should say "desktops."
Linux will never die. Windows is already on it's way.
In a world full of gates, walls and fences, who needs windows?
If you have ever thought that your operating system is too slow, troublesome, cumbersome or just plain annoying, switch the Linux! You don't have to format your entire hard drive and start all over with something you don't understand. If you want to try it, just download it for free and run the system off of a CD or flash drive. Use it until you understand it, then install it if you wish. In the system setup you can choose to partition your hard drive and have Windows and Linux on the same computer. If you have a problem with Linux and can't get online, reboot into Windows and figure it out. Want to use your Windows files without rebooting? Simple! You can view every file on your hard drive through Linux.
Linux comes preloaded with a better version of every piece of software that you would normally pay for in Windows; Office software, multimedia players, graphics editors, instant messengers, torrent downloader, IRC client, Bluetooth, Cd & DVD Burners, etc. It's all there. And if there is something extra that you want, simply install it, for free! All of these programs are more advanced than Windows versions.

I've been using different flavours of Linux for about 10yrs. I think Ubuntu is the first Linux-distro to challenge MS and Mac, it is stable and fast. The one issue is gaming, but it is just a matter of time before they release new games for the Ubuntu platform. Untill then you can use wine, I'm playing Fallout3 right now, works like a charm.
