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 have really loved computers since the early 90's and I like everyone else in America (heck the whole world) was brainwashed to think there was only Micro$oft and a small company called Apple (Mac) for O/S choices. I suppose this came from all the years of brainwashing at school and it seemed like everywhere. I heard Win7 was coming and I asked myself if I wanted to pay a lot and install it or try Linux so I researched and it became evident that Linux was finally looking usable so I gave Ubuntu a try and I found a replacement or a Linux version of every program I use. Also I was very pleased with how fast it was and what's this you don't even need an anti-virus software, this is completely foreign to anyone who has only used Micro$oft. In short Ubuntu ROCKS!

Gave it a try in the summer of 2007, and for me, it was simply better than Windows. Still sticking with it almost a year later, and am quite happy - in the few times that I have to use Windows I actually find it to be less user-friendly, stable, and as nice as Ubuntu.

So, i'm playing around with my laptop, when suddenly XP dies on me. It doesn't even let me boot into the OS. I'm forced to conclude that the only way I'm getting into XP again on the laptop is with a reinstall. So, I look on the internet for "backups" of XP (Don't look at me like that, i do own a disk... somewhere...), and then a thought occured to me: Sure, i COULD go back to XP, but why not try a new OS? I had heard about this "linux" thing, but never really cared to try it out, but now I had a legitimate reason to! So, I hit the forums, and eventually settle on Ubuntu (well, after Sabayon, but Sabayon felt way too slow.) I'm no linux fanboy, in fact, I still use XP on my desktop, as I own a lot of games; however, I'm dualbooting sometimes into 'Buntu, playing around with Wine. One day, when Wine gets to the point where it's able to emulate Windows near perfectly, I may even make the switch permenantly.
Ubuntu isn't perfect, in fact I've been a victim of a bug that until recently was booting me back to login every few hours. But, with the 8.04 update, that's patched up. The support for Ubuntu is great, because everyone is able to help. Microsoft has their techs, Apple has the Genius Bar, Ubuntu has the collective minds of its users. Kinda like Wikipedia, minus most of the vandals. Ubuntu isn't perfect, but it's getting closer, and closer, each and every day. Plus, Compiz alone could convince a guy to make the switch. What can I say? Cake tastes better with icing!
Hope this story convinces you to make the switch, or at least makes you consider that the preinstalled operating system that comes on your computer might not be the best one you can have. After all, the best things in life are free.
