Maybe (and only maybe), before choosing a
distribution, you should choose a package system,
since that's what you are going to use to install
software. Look for RPM and APT, and see what you
think. With my package system (I don't wanna give
you any prejudice, so I won't tell you it's APT),
I can get upgrades easily. But that's because I
know how to use it. There are also other options
beside RPM and APT.

Also, many distributions have live CDs that you
can use to boot your computer and test applications
without installing anything (expect some actions
to be slow, though).
