It might be better to start with defining what exactly linux is.
Linux it self is only a kernel which is currently at 126.96.36.199 http://www.kernel.org/
This is not an Operating System. It is however what makes linux based distributions (such as Ubuntu) be considered linux. It is basically the brains.
Most linux distributions contain a core set of programs from the GNU/Linux operating system http://www.gnu.org/
as well as a lot of other software.
You should start here http://www.linuxquestions.org/reviews/index.php
to get a good idea of where to go next.
Ubuntu, however, is a good start.
Most things should work out of the box. Generally the only thing a first time user will need to configure is 3D support and wireless cards.
Many distributions offer 'live' cds that will work without installing anything. Additionally, Linux magazines in book stores often contain live cds.
Before installing anything. Be sure to back up all important data as dual booting can be tricky.
