Default HTPC OS?

Just wondering what my options are and what people like. I started using ubuntu/mythbuntu but I'm a linux newb and I don't really have the time to invest to learn it and set it up. I'm not sure if I'd be giving up any features or benefits going to a M$ solution. I know the software isn't free but Looking at all the time I've spent just to do simple setup tasks with linux, I don't see it as a bad tradeoff.
