No other distro comes close out-of-the-box. BUT. USE UBUNTU WHILE YOU LEARN ANOTHER, MORE TRADITIONAL DISTRO! Red Hat, BSD, Solaris, CentOS ( <---- my personal favorite... )

Just get started. If you like my title. Then ignore all the flames that this title is going to invoke from fan-boys and get Ubuntu 9.04 going and get...
