    I found Ubuntu 10.04 very easy to move to from Windows. The installation process has also been streamlined to make it familiar and comfortable for those used to MS (but yes, you can partition your disc by hand, if you want to). It is easy to install alongside an existing MS system too, for a dual-boot machine.

    However, anyone considering Ubuntu now should look at the current and future trends in user interface design --- which I do not approve of at all.

    There is no free version of Red Hat available. It is very expensive (runs into thousands of dollars).
    Unless you are a company, you can't afford it.
    However, the free versions of Red Hat are called Fedora. It is available for free downloads. But beware, it is not easy to install ! It may screw up your Windows installation !
    If you want to install and test linux, Linux Mint based on Ubuntu is your best choice. It is freely avaible for download, or you can buy DVDs for a minimal amount, easy to install, easy to run, has a great forum.
    For all Linux distros, you can go to Distrowatch.com and get links from there.

    Clearly the Ubuntu has advantage over Redhat of being user friendly. But i will also take a note for susestudio.com, here we can customise and download our own RPM based OS with all the dependency resolved on their server. It is easy and user friendly.
