Okay guys, sorry for the bump, but I am posting this from Ubuntu. I am using the Wubi version, to test it out and such. My parents don't really like it so they'll stick to Windows. I, however, really like Ubuntu and am willing to make the switch on my own computer.
Just saying that I will join the ranks for Linux/Ubuntu users and that I am enjoying it.
By the way, my dad thinks that Ubuntu and any free antivirus is a virus just because it's free; I was willing to correct him on that, but he's still 'skimpy' on free stuff. His loss.
Thanks for the info guys, this thread can officially die.
