I recommend Ubuntu. Easy install, it detected all my devices and their flavor of Gnome is just sweet. As for not being able to boot to Windows, I had no such problem and in my experience such things can be fixed easily enough. Ubuntu is the only distro so far i can work with out of the box.

if you want to install ubuntu on with windows, i recommand you first partition your hard drive with windows.

Then when you install ubuntu, choose the "expert" install. It shouldn't be that hard, as long as you don't format the wrong thing.
