Gonna go with Ubuntu, or as Mike suggests, Mint.
Give em both a try, nothing wrong with Ubuntu, I just like Mint better, comes with all the video and audio codecs out of the box as well.
And yes, you can dual boot with Windows if you aren't ready to kick it to the curb yet. Didn't take me long to though.

I have played with Ubuntu plenty before, and fedora before that. I kinda know my way around linux. I have Ubuntu Netbook Remix on my netbook right now. The only reason I will keep the small windows partition is for the little bit of gaming I still do.

Yup, that's why a lot of people stick with Windows is for gaming. I think of it this way though, if I want to game I have a PS3 for that. Hardly even touch that thing anymore anyway.

The only reason I keep virus protection handy is bc I download a lot of software and torrents... sometimes u just get a bad one.

Not if you use a private torrent site, and read comments and ratings before you download. As I said. It is all about being smart.

I do. I've still had my bad apples. Besides, every dumb Mofo out there gets on a torrent and says 'OMG it has a virus... Ahhhh!'
