    Burn the Ubuntu image on a disk and boot from it.

    I don't agree.

    Ubuntu is good for beginner to intermediate linux users.
    Power users will prefer Gentoo or Slackware.
    Gentoo is best for geeks (like me)! :)

    If you are a CSE student, you should probably go for Gentoo, as you can compile it from source.

    I personally prefer Free BSD for power users! Ubuntu is the best when it comes to ease of use. At work I work on CentOS.

    I have heard a lot about FreeBSD, may be I will try it in near future. :)

    I have heard CentOS is best for servers.
    Some say Arch Linux is best for power users.

    Obviously opinions vary !

    i have been using fedora for about 2 years now, and i have not had a problem with it. if you have never used a unix system before it will probably take some time to get used to but i think you will probably take a liking to it.
