    Already backed up 3 times. So if something wrong happens, it would only cost me TIME.

    of course Kubuntu, when it comes to looks/transparency. But i had made my mind to install ubuntu first & when i get used to linux, i will for sure try other distros as well, specially Kubuntu is on my priority list.

    Kubuntu looks better, but you might find it a bit harder to learn that ubuntu. And since you are a new user, stick to ubuntu for now.

    Not anymore. The Kubuntu team worked very hard to make KDE 4.4 a stable, functional and zeroconf DE.

    Kubuntu 10.4 is great, but I recommend vanilla Ubuntu with Gnome for new users.

    Also here is a tip for sharing a partition between Linux and Windows which you will absolutely run into at some point.

    -- I your windows system hands or otherwise is stopped abnormally then you filesystem will be marked as dirty/corrupt/etc. Windows will remount it fine without complaining, but Linux respects this and will not mount it.

    Your choices are to:

    1) reboot windows and shutdown normally
    2) Use a linux command to reset the flag
    3) Mount the filesystem manually with the mount command and use the --force option.

    Good luck...
