Replace XP with Linux?

I have two 3+ year old computers with dual core processors- one notebook, one desktop. Both are running XP but I understand support, updates for XP will be ending soon. I am not very interested in trying to update to Win 7..cost, hardware compatibility, etc. A friend suggested Linux but couldn't provide more info. There seems to be many "flavors" of Linux. Any suggestions as to which one? Basically, both machines will be used for internet browsing and basic tasks for which I think Open Office and similar will be adequate. Note, I do have a new and somewhat more up to date PC for photo work. Thanks

Greg
