The thing i love about ubuntu is that for me as a tech it does just work. If it doesn't google normaly has the answer or someone on a forum does. Or i work it out (which i did when installing Xibo on 9.10 in a sun virtualbox on my RM cc4 client and then sharing it accross the network for remote displays.)
L should be called Leaping lizard
M should be called Modest Monkey
N should be called Nubby Nightingale
O should be called Ornery Ocelot
P should be called Prickly Porcupine
Q should be called Qurious Quetazalcoatlus (hmm)
R should be called Rocky Raccoon (unless it infringes on another character)
S should be called Slashing Squirrel
T should be called Tremendous Tiger
U could very well become Undulating Umbrette
V could be vital velociraptor
W should be called Wascally Wabbit (unless again, one of the characters says no. Come on Elmer; let us do it. Please?).
X could be Xtreme Xerus (sorry…)
Y could be Yammering Yaffle
Z should be called Zesty Zebra
Some other thoughts on future release names: [and how they are/might be selected]
[It would appear that Gatt is correct with Lucid Lynx for 10.4 so we can scrub 'Leaping Lizard']

Another vote for Ubuntu - I use Jaunty with XBMC

A note on wubi:
Remember that this is not a 'proper' installation of Ubuntu, its essentially a disk image stored on the c: drive of your windows partition, you will take a performance hit so don't completely judge the Ubuntu experience on a wubi installation. There are other issues with these kind of disk images such as no hibernation and hard reboots are more likely to cause data corruption than a normal installation.
If you like Ubuntu and want to move it to its own partition, you can take your wubi install and use LVMP to move it.
create a partition in your HDD, install ubuntu, then take your Win 7 disk and restore the Master Boot Record, that way if you decide you dont like ubuntu, the GRUB loader doesnt cock up your system!
Fedora 11 with KDE 4.3
Not really used any other distro much, I tend to get on with Fedora fine though
Any chance you could post back and let us know how you get on and which distro you went with, personally I was thinking about ubuntu / open suse myself as was contemplating having my machine tri booting ( OS X, A linux Distro and Windows either Xp or 7 ) as there is an opensource app that you use as to select / pick which OS you want to load as apposed to using the bootcamp OS Chooser by holding down Alt.
Anyway just as a side note - compiz is pretty good, takes a bit of configuring but nice effects etc
If you want to try Linux without any partitioning get Sun's Virtualbox, excellent for trying out OSes.
A note for if your using it withing Virtual box, make sure you use the brigding adaptor when configuring a network card. That way it hangs on the network like a real box.
