Check your hardware against those distros you're interested in. Ubuntu is, in fact, the name of a distro. You can find that distro and many others here. There is no "best," only what "works best" for you.

for me ubuntu is the best distro for me ive tryed everything from mandrake to arch and so far ubuntu the debian based distro is amazing you have a really good package manager ( apt-get ) and it takes care of dependencies, ubuntu has a auto mount feature well thats the main reasons i use it .. if you want check out for the screenshots

Go to the link posted by JSpired, download a few distros and take them on a "test drive". After that settle on the one that you prefer.

Moved: This thread is more suitable in Distributions and has been moved accordingly to help your thread/question get the exposure it deserves.

Just my 2 cents - the only way to determine which distro is right for you is to try several and then choose the one that you feel best fits your needs and preferences -- J.W.
