What is the best way to install Ubuntu on a PC?
I've got an old Windows Vista PC that I was thinking of using as a guinea pig for my first Ubuntu experience. I know practically nothing about Ubuntu really. Come to think of it, I guess that makes me the guinea pig instead of the PC. How do I install Ubuntu? I remember that you used to be able to get a CD. Can you still do that? Is it worthwhile to get the CD, or is it just as easy to download? I'll figure it out once I get started either way, but I'd just as soon use the most simple method.
