    Depends on your level of experience with *nix systems. How much do you have?
    Less is more.

    Depends ... what do you want to do with it? Just use it to surf the web? Do some office work? Or do you want to learn UNIX?

    If the former, you should pick something like Ubuntu. It's fast and practical and you don't need to know much about Linux or Unix-like systems to use it.

    If the latter and from personal experience, you should pick a distribution that is most Unix-like to start with. Otherwise you'll never learn anything about Unix-like systems.

    That said, I recommend Gentoo. But there are others like Slackware that are Unix-like (Slackware is more BSD-like from what I hear and that's not your conventional Unix-like system).

    I personally started with FreeBSD (which is not Linux). I went directly from Windows XP to FreeBSD with absolutely no UNIX experience ... so it's possible (but it will be painful).

    You should find a guide or handbook to read about the Unix-like system of your choice and go through it at a slow pace ... do one chapter a day.

    I personally multi-booted XP and FreeBSD. I would boot FreeBSD for a little bit, pull up the next chapter in the FreeBSD handbook and play with it. Then I'd go back to Windows XP. After a while, I felt as comfortable with FreeBSD as I did Windows XP.

    Nice thing about learning real Unix-like systems is that you'll be able to use any Unix-like system, be it Linux (any distribution), Solaris, OS X, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, DragonFlyBSD, etc ...

    Honestly, with what Ubuntu has become, I would suggest one of the other *buntus (Lubuntu or Kubuntu, imo) or Mint for that "casual" case.

    Today Mac os x is the world's most advanced operating system, it is working based on the unix. It is having latest features like GPU-accelerated desktop, graphics technologies, including Core Animation, Core Image and OpenGL multicore CPUs. It gives the best results to you and it makes easy to users in downloading applications.
