    Ubuntu will ship you a CD free of charge. Takes up to 10 weeks, though. I don't know of any other distro that will do that.

    Every distro does things a little differently, but there are more similarities than differences. Ubuntu uses a different package manager and packaging format than Mandriva (deb packages vs. rpm). Default programs might be a little different, locations of some things might be a little different.

    Still I'm not understand about linux stuff yet,
    today I've just finished read about installing software in linux,
    so can we install a program in mandriva to ubuntu?

    linux is an open source,
    so what programming language it used?

    The answers to your questions are fairly involved. It's not something you really need to worry about for basic usage. It's almost better to think of each distribution as it's own linux-based operating system, rather than linux as some sort of whole uniform thing. Learn the tools in whichever distro you use to begin with and in time things become clearer.

    As for programming language, the linux kernel is mostly written in C, but many different languages are used to develop different programs.

    so, can we use another programming language like java or assembly?
    I've another type question here,
    maybe it's not really connected with my question before,
    I've learn some programming language,
    Java and Visual Basic,
    but in the processes I start to think how can I develop or try to do a project?
    or when can I start to do?
    coz I don't know wheter I'm good enough or not....
