Ubuntu is a version of Linux, if you've heard of that. Linux is a free and open source operating system. It's more complex than windows, but the latest versions of Ubuntu have made it more user-friendly. Whether it's better than Windows or not is a matter of preference and opinion. If you'd like to try it without installing it, you can make a Live CD which will run the system right off of the CD when you boot. Here is how you do that:

DLZ, if I were you, I would not touch it. You are still on a steep learning curve with Vista. I would not burn the candle on both ends. But then again, it is the priveledge of young people like you to experiment. Taybay's suggestion sounds good - just for the fun of it.

I second taybay's suggestion of the LiveCD.
