What exactly are you trying to do, which would help you (and us) decide a distro for you?

Try Jolicloud

I have installed the latest version - 1.1. It is based on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

If u are trying to make a transition from Windows to Linux, this will make it very smooth & easy. Ideal for net books & for any one whose computing is more cloud based; but apart from the cloud based apps, the rest of the user interface w.r.g files, documents etc is the same as in Ubuntu 10.04.

Try it, u will be in for a pleasant surprise to have found such an user friendly Linux distro, that simply works out of the box.

Opensolaris can dual boot with windows, but i am not familiar with it,
basically solaris is Gnome based.

Opensuse got everything for me, I am very happy with it.

But redhat isn't free....they do require some monetary payment. Ubuntu is one of the better ones IMO but as with most things in life it's all personal preference.

Any distribution can co-exist with Windows without any problem.

For virtually every Linux distribution in the known universe, someone on this and the plethora of other similar threads has listed their favorite distro, without saying what virtues it has that distinguish it from all of the others. There are differences between distributions, but without actually describing what those are, the reader cannot make any use whatsoever of those kinds of posts. I have several favorites, and each for their own reasons. I won't bother to list those reasons here, because the original poster gave us no parameters within which to frame any answers. Some distros are distinct in some specific ways, but without addressing the requirements, any response given will only frame the requirements of the people responding, and invariably, those requirements are not stated.
Okay, I suppose this qualifies as a rant to some degree. So be it. But please, when you weigh in with your favorite distro, at least give some credibility to your vote by describing how it fits the needs better than others, and what particular needs it addresses.

If you mean PCBSD and OpenBSD, than no, it is Unix.
