It's not as easy as that. Windows and GNU/Linux are completely different systems with different strengths. If you need to run alot of Windows applications and games, then Windows is the best choice. If you need it for general office and internet use, and don't rely on Windows-only applications, then Ubuntu is a very good choice. You'll just have to find out for yourself. Fortunately, the Ubuntu Desktop CDs and DVDs are bootable, so you can experiment with it without installing anything.
