Welcome to LQ!!

You are surrounded by such things!!--just type the word "linux" into a Google search.

The best way to learn Linux is to install it and use it. If you want to do some reading first, go to the O'Reilly website. Many of their books are now free online, and they also have the "Safari" service. Also try http://tldp.org And--any large bookstore will have a good selection of Linux books.

Hi,

Linux is the kernel, there are many different distributions using that kernel.

They are mostly the same, but there can be different ways of doing things.

I suggest you get an Ubuntu live cd (desktop CD) and play with it.
http://releases.ubuntu.com/9.04/

You will probably want the first one on that page.
You will have to burn it to a cd. You can do that in windows or linux.
It must be burned as an image not a file.

The Ubuntu forums have lots of tutorials.
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsefulDocumentation


There are lots of other distributions, but get used to ubuntu first.

regards

Alan
