Good, hope you like it. Just remember that Linux Is Not Windows (link), and even the things you think can't be different will be. Come with no assumptions about how things in Windows worked, you are learning to use a computer almost from scratch.

Anyway, download the ISO disc image, and burn it (note whether it said CD or DVD next to the download!). Be sure to burn it as an image, NOT as a data disc. If you open the CD and see just the ISO file in it, that's wrong.

What do you mean? Are you asking is there is anything better than Linux?

Anyway, it's just your personal preference. Linux is based on Unix, other open-source Unix-likes include OpenSolaris (cancelled by Oracle when they bought Sun, but the community decided to continue it under the name OpenIndiana instead of letting it die) and BSD.

Also, Mac OS X is based on Unix. It's not free/open source, though, and it's not the same user experience because it uses a totally different "GUI subsystem" made by Apple, while Linux uses the free and open source X Window System.

Linux Mint also might be worth considering.

Things like proprietary codecs and Flash are often hard to install in Linux, because of the huge clash of Linux's open-source philosophy vs. Flash and media codecs' proprietary, DRM-supporting philosophies. Linux Mint comes with these pre-installed, though, because even though it's better to aviod proprietary software, Flash and media codecs are unaviodable.

I wasn't going to post this, but what the heck...

I can't believe no one has pointed out that if you had to ask where to find a way to download Linux, then it probably isn't for you. You will have to learn (and unlearn, if you're a Windows convert) many things, and you will have to do a little of your own research. Finding Linux online should be the easiest step of all, and that you weren't able to do so might raise a flag. Please read the excellent link 'Linux is not Windows' posted by MTK358, and understand some of the Linux culture.
There are many people available to help you, and you're free to ask for all the help you want. If it isn't in your nature to want to learn for yourself, then Linux might not be for you. Hope you do enjoy your Linux exposure.

Unnecessary for one. Not a constructive post holistically!

Why do you think it's wrong to ask for help with an unknown? How do you know the OP doesn't know this information? Newbies ask in this form all the time. If English isn't their first language then the tone or conveyance may lack. What makes you think the OP uses M$ Windows? Assumption? Why not MAC OSX?

Yes, there are many here on LQ that can be of aid. But why place that roadblock or condition on a Newbie? We all learn when approaching the unknown or exposing ourselves to things that may challenge our understanding by not having the knowledge on the subject but do have the intelligence to ask. Curiosity is not quantified. Earlier you present assumptions and now say the OP should ask in order to learn. Rather mixed prose.

"Knowledge is of two kinds. We Know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information upon it." - Samuel Johnson

The OP asked how to download Linux. A Google search would have yielded countless links to Linux download sites. Linux isn't a good fit for everyone, and to point that out isn't a bad thing. I didn't assume the OP used Windows, but that the question did ask for a comparison (advantage), I'd say there is some probability of it. Maybe she is a Mac user; the principle of my answer is the same. There was no intent to disparage the OP. If you read that into my post, it wasn't intended.
