Ubuntu is a version of Linux based on the rock-solid Debian. It comes in three versions: Desktop, Server and Netbook. The Desktop and Server version have two version each 32 bit and 64 bit.

Ubuntu has also two alternative versions: Edubuntu and Kubuntu.

Ubuntu Desktop is, in my oppinion the best Linux distribution ever produced. As all versions, it has a huge support from the comunity on almost every problem that you may encounter.

The distribution numbers are based on the year and the month. For instance, the last one is 10.10. The first version is 4.10 (20 October 2004).
