Ubuntu is quite good for linux beginners, but their repositories are out of date. If you want the newest version, you always have to find the *.deb or install it from source, which is not that pleasant if you're not used to it. That's the reason I'm moving on to archlinux. It's a load of work to install a full GUI desktop on it, but you'll have exactly what you want and you will know exactly how it works. Also, the software in their repositories is very up-to-date :)
And I can understand why you want 0.9.30. It was the first version I found pleasant to work with (one debugger issue was finally gone).
I have to give that docking package a try too. I found it annoying to have all those IDE windows live separately on my taskbar. Thanks for that :)
That was exactly why I wanted 0.9.30+ :D

Chrono:My two words of advice would be to setup a VM and install all th stuff you need inside that - then copy it to an extrernal HDD or network and dd it to your hard drive from a live cd - that way you know you have everything you need and don't end up with a machine running something you don't like using ;)
PauL: 0.9.30+ don't have all those pesky windows on your desktop??? I am so giving that a spin.
