You have many possibilities, Wei Zhi Hui.
I suggest you take a look at Ubuntu Linux. It is free, it is desktop oriented, it is easy to install and it comes with a lot of great open source software. However, if you're into tinkering with your computer a lot, you may want to try Gentoo Linux. It requires you to compile the whole system from the ground-up, but you'll sure end up with a system that works just the way you want.

However, I strongly discourage you from installing Microsoft Windows or Mandriva Linux. They don't allow easy upgrades between versions, and looking at the Microsoft Windows example, they're very expensive too.

Best.

Buy Windows Vista next year.
OEM versions are cheap (about 120$ if you buy it with mouse or another computer part) and safe and easy to use.
And it's compatible with windows...
And you'll have best possible support, which no unix like system will ever have for free, (and if you want to pay for it, what's the point to choose unix like system anyway)

I'll go with greybrow, I think you should give Vista a shot.
You can always dual boot Linux and Vista, that's probably what I will do.
