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.
