Thank you for the feedback everybody! :)

Yea, I noticed that Ubuntu has been at the top for some time.  And I 
like it's meaning.  In English, it roughly translates into "humanity 
towards others" -- see 
<>.  Anyway, I'm 
thinking that's where I'll start.  At work, I did Solaris for 2 years 
and been on HP-UX for the last 3 years.  I LOVE GNU/Linux compared to 
HP-UX.  The tools on the HP-UX 11i machines at my job are SO poor!
