Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

which is latest linux distros Fedro or RHEL, Ubuntu or which support all hardware like wifi sound videos
The most suggested one is Mint, but you've said in two other threads that you're either using RHEL 6 or Ubuntu 12...BOTH are old. Now you're asking about Fedora? Mint would probably be the best to start with.
i do not know because i work in windows but i am interested in linux
What you work in now is immaterial, because you can still look things up using Windows. You can find many, MANY threads about this very issue with a brief search of this site, and on Google.
And as said to you before, without knowing what kind of hardware you have, how do you think we'll be able to suggest what would be 'best' for you??
With only 2 GB's of memory, you will need something lightweight. My system also has only 2 GB's and have found Lubuntu 14.04 works very well with it. You could also try the newest version, which is 16.04. Both offer long term support.
Zorin or linux mint is free or i will purchase from whereelse
They're ALL FREE...and if you'd like to know where to download them, feel free to actually look at their websites. You can find them with a brief Google search...as said before, read the "Question Guidelines" link in my posting signature. We are happy to help, but at some point, you need to start looking things up and doing them for yourself.
