Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Using CoLinux, the Xming X server, and PulseAudio for Windows, the boys and girls behind the Portable Ubuntu for Windows project have turned the entire Ubuntu distribution into a executable that you can run within Windows. You can see some screenshots, and download it from their web page.

By the way, I was a big Ubuntu fan until Gutsy, when all my problems started. PulseAudio is a big part of the problem, but I have also had tons of problems with X and my video setup. I now hate Ubuntu and only continue to use because of the trouble required to put another Linux, and of course the fact that there are 10^999 distro options these days. Though if anyone here has recommendations I am all ears.

You should never, ever, ever, willingly run an Operating System you hate. Your hair will turn grey, fall out, you'll get the measles and snivels, your children will grow up trying to become dictators, and your wife will leave for the man who's boots have been under your bed.

Okay, seriously, it's not hard to try another distribution though. Just download and burn some CD's, and shoot em for a spin. I would try Mandriva, OpenSuse, Fedora, Debian, CentOS, PCLinuxOS, or just randomly search and see what tickles your fancy.
