Please just take a look at the licensing information on an Ubuntu CD wrapper
or on the Ubuntu website, and all doubts might be cleared.

Your choice will entirely depend on what ultimate use you want to put the OS
to, however, Ubuntu is very well packaged and may suit your requirements
satisfactorily.

If you don't like Ubuntu after trying it, you need not worry.  If you have
partitioned your system/s properly (e.g. keeping the /home directory on a
separate partition), you can switch distros easily without worrying about
loss of critical data or documents.
