Is it that much better than Windows?
Or is it only for hard core computer geeks?

Been thinking about tinkering with it on a VM just for schitzangiggles, but was curious if anyone had any recommendations on what version to use or 'flavor' as I've heard apparently oft-bored hard core computer geeks call the different builds.

Unless I have time to play around, but that would require free time.

For me, this would just be to satisfy my curiosity and learn something outside of Windows. Maybe I'll even appreciate MS more.
One of the guys I work with came in and first thing he did when he started was take the computer we gave him and install Linux.
I had the pleasure a couple weeks ago of needing to use his computer since he was on vacation and it took forever to burn some drivers to a damn CD, just because I wasn't familiar at all with the menus, commands, etc.
So that's kinda where all this started.
I did prefer Legos when I was younger, but I have no desire to be labeled 'pretentious computer snob'.
Otherwise, I'd just go buy a Mac.
