    Default Linux, Solaris (various versions)

    I've been meaning to investigate DragonflyBSD. HAMMER looks interesting; I'm curious how it'll compare to BTRFS.

    Hi
    That is a good question. I was once in the same situation as you were. I did a lot of research. Lot of vendors offer linux and since its open source you can download it for free. I highly recommend UBUNTU 8.10 which is the latest version. UBUNTU has very good features and is good for beginners if you are migrating from windows. You dont have to learn anything to start using it. Gradually when you get used to u can use the command mode to learn.
