deinstalling windows installing ubuntu
today I intend to deinstall windows xp in favour of ubuntu 6.10,
will I be able to upgrade in the same way as in windows or is the program complete with no upgrades available.
If this is the case is there a better linux for upgrading or would it be better to play with ubuntu and get used to the differences between
windows and linux distro's.

Yes, you are able to upgrade Ubuntu. You can stick with the standard repositories or custom add other ones to get bleeding edge stuff like nightly releases of beryl.
