I have no experience with Linux. I'm looking for a distribution which is beginner friendly. Ubuntu looks great.
My usage for this system will include web development, and possibly application development.
However, I would prefer a system where I can design my own theme, alter the interface. Think "theming".
What would you recommend?
EDIT I'm looking to run this on a 2008 MacBook Pro 2.4Ghz C2D, 2GB GDDR3.
Will it be okay performance wise through virtualization such as VMWARE or should I use BootCamp?
