Jetamay (or other Linux experienced people), look.
I'm trying to choose best distro for Linux. Im going to dual boot with Vista on my laptop, I partitioned 20gb for it, for learning (and other) reasons. But I cant choose anything mostly because I havent experienced any yet. I have Ubuntu CDs from 5.10 but they fail to boot on my laptop, and 8.10 is out anyway. I hear Debian is good to start (or even stay) with.
ubuntu ultimate edition will come with lots of shit that can be very usefull. ubuntu plain will do the work but if you are working with ubuntu you want to have everything there and not be switching between windows and linux. With ubuntu ultimate you can do everything in ubuntu and use windows only for gaming.
