Linux has a number of file systems to choose from. The ext4 file system is pretty advanced but ext3 or ext2 are also good choices. Generally if you are installing a Linux or Unix-like distribution then it is a good idea to choose the default option provided by the installer. That option will be well supported and likely to work right out of the box.
If you aren't sure whether to use Linux or Solaris, then you should definitely use Linux. It has the widest support for different kinds of hardware. Solaris is likely to not work on many PC systems.
Might be Linux. It is widely availble, easy to use and has as much eye candy as vista. On the other hand you need to register for Solaris and I haven't seen any apps that work on Solaris. Linux filesytems include EXT2 EXT3.

UNIX is a operating system which has only command user interface, and if the unix is installed in the system you cant install any other operating system after that ... one separate system must be allocated for the unix ...
LINUX is the graphical user interface and it supports multiple operating system ..
UNIX and LINUX are almost same, almost all commands which supports in UNIX supports in LINUX too .. with some extended features just like GUI(GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACE),SECURITY,MULTI USER,MULTI TASKING,etc
COMMAND USER INTERFACE - the input is made to the computer by using commands and the output is obtained by command or by printer ...
GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACE- the input is provided to the computer through the other input devices like mouse,joystick etc the input is provided either by command or by the just clicking the mouse on the particular icon ...
example for graphical user interface is windows,Macintosh etc ...

To make a long answer short, Unix, Linux, and Windows are different operating systems. Each allow command-line commands and point-and-click operations. Unix workstations are used for running engineering software, programming, networking, web browsing, and electronic mail. Linux computers come with productivity tools and CSS is adding engineering software packages as they become available. Windows computers are used for productivity tools (word processing, database, etc.)
Yes, you can have them both, install vista first and then linux, ones you have your linux working you have to configure the bootloader in linux to also include the vista so you get a screen when you start up your pc
if your distro uses lilo heres what it would look like
All you would have to do to get vista working again would be to add the vista into the bootloader, the process differs between bootloaders so I'm not going to post how todo that, consult the documentation.
One thing thought, Id recommend you have atleast 2 hard drives since linux and windows don't use the same filesystem. You would have to partition your harddrive into 3 or more parts. Windows, linux and linux swap.
More on this in the documentation of your linux.
