Welcome to LQ Joey. Perhaps it would be good to know what you'd like to get out of learning Linux? If you have a goal in mind then providing a more concise answer by LQ members will be easier.

Shot in the dark if you're looking to do system administration type stuff then here's a couple of posts I've written in the past which would help you in that area. At the very least the first post is great general advice if you don't know what you want to learn yet.

You can download and burn a few live cd's and try them out. They're free and you can find where to get them at Distrowatch. This link gives you information on the top 10 linux distros (distributions) and where to get the live CD's for these distros. Try out a few of them and pick the one that suits you best.
Above all, have fun.
