Ubuntu is a distro of Linux. There are 3 versions of it which are basically the same except they use different "Desktop Environments" so basically they look and act different (GUI). The latest version is 7.04 (Feisty Fawn), the testing version (not out) is 7.10 (Gusty Gibbon). 6.10 (Edgy Eft) is proably the best one. 6.06 (Dapper Drake) LTS has extra support on via their community (forums, etc.]]]. Ubuntu prides itself on its community and humanity. Some say it is the easiest linux to use and because of this it is great for beginers.
Install Packages On older versions
A disadvantage is that on older versions you cannot install new packages, even the old versions compatible with the system. To retire a system installing extra programs (SSH for remote access and SSH or samba for file transfer). You have to modify /etc/apt/sources.list to enable installing packages again.

Goto recovery mode from grub and type "sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg" at promt, just BS through the options until you get to refresh rate, the best bet is to chose "medium" it displays the display modes, pick on u know will work, for me I picked the lowest "640 X 480 60 HZ"
Used for lowering resolution on crappy monitor. However I later used this to up the res on a good one with a crappy video card.
