On 10-10-10, Ubuntu is releasing an upgrade called Maverick Meerkat, it's free to consumers (ubuntu is South African for: open and available to others, affirming of others) and super easy to use! You can still leave Windows on your computer with a small partition allotted for Ubuntu. There's even a youtube video showing you step by step how to install! All of my kids PC, and one my hubs bought for work, now have Ubuntu on them, it's so much fun and better to use.
I wanted to share with you some of Ubuntu's fun marketing adds, they're too funny!!
