    I am tired of virus and malware issues with Windows Xp and 7. Which is a good Linux operating system to use. I mostly use it for business and E-mail applications. Thank you.

    Linux Mint works well on most machines.
    You can burn a "Linux Mint Live DVD" and boot your PC with it to see what it looks like and how it works.
    Your own machine won't be altered by having a look.

    A tutorial is here:

    The .iso file downloads to burn to disk are here.
    You will need DVD burning software like Roxio or Nero or IMGBURN and a blank DVD-R or DVD+R disk for each:

    The different downloads have different styles of desktops
    You may have to try more than one to see which you like best.
