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.

I was getting sick of Microsoft Windows and it's near total penetration in the computer market.
I bought a new low-specification laptop and it came with Windows Vista preinstalled... it ran horribly because it used so many of the computer's resources, and was just generally unpleasant to use. I installed an old copy of Windows XP just so the computer could work!
After years of being frustrated by the sloppiness of software and the sheer magnitude of the files, and the number of unnecessary software, including a generally unpleasant computing experience, I decided to take the dive into Linux... it took me ages to find the right one for me, as really I didn't know much about Linux. I came across Ubuntu, and my technically minded brother said it was supposed to be easy to use.
I installed it, and have not looked back... true I do miss playing some more modern games that don't run on Wine, but really, the computer does everything I could want it to! I mean, who really wants to do anything apart from word processing, browsing the web, instant messaging, and watching films?
I love my Ubuntu, and the vast support net available on Ubuntu forums. Hopefully Ubuntu will soon become fully out of the box, and give Microsoft its much needed run for its money... with Ubuntu being free!
The repositories also are my gateway to my productivity and entertainment... some of my favourite educational software is on there... I love my Freemind and Openoffice Formula! :D

Linux has engaged my life in a way that Windows and Mac could not, it is an excellent operating system that deserves the best of awards. Its user friendly interface, and its simple way of operation makes Ubuntu a star. I just recently downloaded 9.04 and I love it. I recommend it to anyone that loves real and true technology!
I was so tired of windows and I wanted to learn more but windows was not advanced enough. I tried alot of distros and then finally settled down with Ubuntu 6.06. It was easy, yet very powerful. Today I use 8.10 and 8.04 on all my computers.
