Clearly from what I see, Ubuntu is the most widely used Linux Dist.

But is it truly the best one out there? Or are there others? I feel like having a Linux partition for some reason.



None.

Relatively ancient and inactive

Back when I had a Linux Fetish, I'd chosen the Suse distribution. Never got around to installing it, though. OpenSuse is the free version. Also, Windows > Ubuntu. I know, as someone who uses Ubuntu in school. Annoying as hell. Going with open-source doesn't make you cool. Or me. I was actually too lazy to actually install it :P.

Yeah, Linux really isn't a good main OS, I'd just put it on a partition or something for random times when you feel a need to use it.

I actually tend to use it more often because it doesn't have all the extra stuff trying to run that my Windows side does that I'm too lazy to really turn off. When I need something other than web/word processing, then I boot Windows.

Ubuntu isn't the "best" distribution of Linux by any means, but if you've never used Linux before it's probably a friendly place to start because the superficial use is very similar to Windows. I still run Ubuntu because I really haven't bothered to figure out bash :P
