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.
