Lately, I have been hearing that Ubuntu is an easy Linux distribution to install and it is easier to install than Windows XP. I have even heard remarks that "My grandmother could install Ubuntu." With that being said, I did virtual installs of both Ubuntu Linux and Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2 to see which one I felt was easier.
The XP interface was easier to work with but had many more screens to work through than the Ubuntu Linux.
