Ubuntu is great, but IMO its user-interface is just too slow. However, it
does look modern and quite nice. I personally use xubuntu which seems
better on older (i.e. 2 years+) or on virtual machines.

Virtual machines are a fantastic way of giving people a perfectly
reasonable trial experience, they really work very well. You can also then
set up other people's machine's precisely as they will all just be copies.
You then know what they will be seeing, using etc if they are asking you
