    Welcome to the forum. If you will go to the "All new users read this first" at the top of this page, you can take a distro quiz which will help you select a distro. you can also go to distrowatch.com and look at many different distros to see what appeals to you.

    if you know ubuntu, stick with it. Don't fix what isn't broken ... some other people say.

    if you can't do something on Ubuntu, ask for how to do it then.

    Magis is right, stick with what you know. The ubuntu repositories have one of the widest selections of aps there is for linux.
