I believe the problem is that emoticon thing you tried to do in the end.

No its not, Ubuntu is free open source software and they actively support torrents as a download method.
Their website. http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop
The latest if you want the best, Personally I use XUbuntu 12.04 LTS
32 Bit is generally better for Linux at the moment as I hear, But if you want 64, Get 64

I do think this is a bug. I can see it quoting your message.

"Hi everyone, in less than a month I will be taking Computer Engineering in College and they're telling us that Ubuntu is what's generally used there. I haven't tried Ubuntu before but I really want to. What I know is that it's FREE so its not wrong to torrent it right? if not then where should I download it and which version? I read that theres and AMD64 and two other types of it so I'm not really sure what will work with a system like mine >_<"

Now to answer the questions.

1. No it is not wrong to torrent it. It is actually legal (as there is no patent/copywrite infringement due to the GPL (I think they use the GPL.) and opensource nature). It also helps them a bit as it reduces the bandwidth they need to distribute it (as thousands of people also torrent it making a massive pipeline greater than even Google fiber could create).

2. Versions, that is all personal choice really. You have 2 main choices between LTS and current. 12.04 is the LTS (until next April) right now, which is stable and supported long term (I don't really understand the difference, as it never bothers me to update every 6 months). The current is 13.04, and it is supposed to have a lower impact version of the window manager and several other fixes, but it has been buggy on my systems.
After you choose which version, then you have several other choices, mainly having to do with the Window manager. Standard Ubuntu uses Unty/Gnome3, Lubuntu (my favourite) uses LXDE, Kubuntu uses KDE, and I think Edubuntu is KDE also iirc, Just choose the one that looks best to you. They all do about the same thing.

3. Your system (in sig) will run AMD64 (just plain old 64 bit) or i386 (x86 aka 32 bit). Ubuntu recommends you download 32 bit, but either works about the same these days.
