Help me decide whether to downgrade to XP Pro or move to Ubuntu from Vista.

I tried to give Vista a fair shot, but I can't take it anymore.
I have a Dell Dimension C521 Desktop, 1GB RAM, AMD Athlon 64 2.40GHz.
I'm wanting to try Ubuntu but I'm pretty much clueless when it comes to Linux, I've been wanting to change that. Knowing that, would it be better to stick with XP or is Ubuntu easy enough to use that I will be okay after the initial adjustment? Pros and cons?
Also, I would be downloading Ubuntu, would it work okay if I burned it with something like CloneCD and used it as a boot disc? Or no?
Oh also I'd be using this computer for general surfing, emailing, little to no gaming. Also, my internet is wired, not wireless and I don't have any weird peripherals that would require specific drivers. Sorry if I'm leaving anything out here!
