is always a good place to start. Use the desktop edition--this is advertised as being suitable for netbooks. The old netbook edition is no longer supported. You don't have to install it on your hard drive straight away. You can create a bootable USB stick just to play around with. This is true of most Linux distributions.
P.S. The standard Ubuntu distribution comes with the Unity desktop (window manager) which not everyone likes and can be resource-intensive. There are other flavours of Ubuntu that use different desktops. Xubuntu
, which uses XFCE, is particularly nice imo and easy on resources.

'Your experiences, then?'
'They have been trivial, uninteresting, and full of error.'
