Most of websites that you are visiting while browsing Internet are hosted on Linux and other Unix family systems. The main reason for that is its stability. Now, you can experience that stability on your desktop computer by downloading and installing Ubuntu Linux.
If you are tired of frequent hangs and crashes of your current operating system you should definitely try out Ubuntu.
Its open architecture guarantees that it is almost 100% bug free, and even if some bugs occur, they are being fixed in a matter of hours.

I've been using Ubuntu for a few years now. It's been awesome :D
At first I just had it on a spare laptop, using it for email and such. Over time, I used Windows less and less. For quite a while now, it's been my primary operating system (I have a small XP partition, only used to play Red Alert 2).
Gnome is a brilliant desktop, and most of the software pre-installed is wonderful (Although I prefer VLC to Totem).
I can see myself using Linux for years to come.

Several years ago, fed up with paying premium prices for unstable and non-secure software that functioned as the mega-corporations wanted and not as I wanted, I migrated to Linux.
As I replaced each of my productivity tools with excellent free and open source software, I tried a variety of distros and settled on one that was "good enough."
When Feisty Fawn was released, I gave Kubuntu a try and installed it on my desktop within the week. With every subsequent release, I've loved this distro more and more and I know run it on all the machines on my network.

There was a CD with Ubuntu on it, in a computer magazine. At that time I was using Windows XP (which I think is a very good piece of software). But since I had a slow PC, XP with all the anti virus/firewall and other security software was so slow that it was not easy working with it. An then out of curiosity I took that Ubuntu CD and booted it. I was amazed by the fact that I didn't need any drivers or security software and that I could connect to Internet by making few clicks. To make it short, Ubuntu does what it should do, in a fast, simple, and secure way. And this is what I need.
PS: I must admit that it took me some time to get used to the way Linux functions.
