    Ubuntu

    If I download it, will it make my laptop faster? (I only have 512MB of RAM) and would I be able to change back to Win XP if I wanted to later?

    When I had it on my old laptop, I could choose to boot in Win7 or Ubuntu when I turned it on.

    So I'm pretty sure you can change back if you want.

    @The productive cunt, you can always download ubuntu, and install it with your XP, so like basically, you have both OS, you can switch back and forth when u restart your comp,

    like me, I have Ubuntu 10.04 and Win 7 on my comp, I come on my win 7 when i want to play any games....

    but you don't have to completely format your comp, and install......... if you know what i mean... and if u wanna know how to install it while having your other OS, let me know and i will try to make a vid..

    Like when you turn your cpu on it, it will ask which you want to boot on.

    You shouldn't need directions, it's pretty simple.

    Fine
    Depending on your config, most likely, yeah. Get Lubuntu or Xubuntu (XFCE will most likely be the best balance between features / speed and has the windows-ish feel that KDE and other "linuxy" DE lack).
