Hi,
Ubuntu is a very popular starting point for those new to Linux operating systems http://www.ubuntu.com/ubuntu The 12.04 version has 5 years support and is very stable, the 12.10 version is a bit newer & still has one or two hiccups for some users.

This is a very useful guide to get you started http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/

Post back in this thread when you've got additional questions.
Ubuntu needs the following spec to work well:

  • 700 MHz processor (about Intel Celeron or better)
  • 512 MiB RAM (system memory)
  • 5 GB of hard-drive space (or USB stick, memory card or external drive but see LiveCD for an alternative approach)
  • VGA capable of 1024x768 screen resolution
  • Either a CD/DVD drive or a USB port for the installer media
From: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SystemRequirements


If your machine has lower specs, there are lighter __buntus or alternative Linux versions - just ask here.


Hope this helps.

Also, and I can't stress this enough, Linux is *NOT* Windows. It will not operate the same and certain commands can wipe out your entire system.

I would suggest a Live distro. You can do this with Ubuntu.
