I am a dummy when it comes to trying out OSes different from Windows. However I would like to experience one, and understand why they are so talked about.
A cursory glance over some websites and tutorials led me to believe that Ubuntu is the best distro of Linux to start with, particularly for dummies.
I also understand that there is a parallel KDE based Kubuntu available as well.
So, please suggest me which is the better distro, or is there anything which is better than Ubuntu altogether?
