Hi,

These are help forums so generally for threads here there would be a topic that you need help with and that the title of the thread would also reflect. Well let's not waste an oppotunity to save a thread... What is one of the things that you are finding too complex with Ubuntu? And let's try to keep it simple no big long lists~.

Welcome to linux and welcome to the LQ forums!

There is a learning curve to using any linux distro. Linux is very different than Windows. You will have to do some reading to get the most out of any linux distro you choose.
Ubuntu is one of the more beginner friendly distros, and there are tons of tutorials all over the net for Ubuntu, so it is a good choice for a beginner.
Here are 2 excellent sites for getting started with Ubutnu:
http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/
http://members.iinet.net/~herman546/
Also, http://howtoforge.com has a lot of beginner friendly tutorials for Ubuntu and many other distros. Here are 2 recent good guides for Ubutnu:
To install Ubuntu 9.10:

Well, I'm not exactly the fountainhead of information but may I suggest a quick stop at you local book store. You might even find a book for the distro of Linux you are installing which would give you step by step information as how to install it.

But certainly you will find some good books on Linux just to get you started with Linux and from that point on you can ask more informed question as how to do certain function with the distro you are using...good luck.
