    I've recently thought about installing this on my brothers laptop because Vista takes up too much of his memory. My question(s) are How easy is it to use? How easy is it to setup? And do I have to un-install Vista to use it? And how compatible is it with other programs, most being video games? Thanks!

    Ubuntu is a linux based operating system, you may not need to uninstall vista if your machine has a free partition on the hard drive. If you have a copy of Ubuntu on a CD, you can use it as a live CD,which means once you restart your computer with the Ubuntu CD inside, your computer will boot from the CD and let you try out Ubuntu without installing it on your system. So there you can try it out but it should be easy.

    If the games your trying to run are for windows, most likely they wont be compatible with Ubuntu. I'm not exactly sure though. Any program you use on windows has to be compatible with ubuntu, or it wont work. If you want to use windows, just get a copy of XP or Windows 2000. If you've never used any kind of linux before, just stick with windows.
