Try this:

And then, look around - there are web sites which help you choosing distros based on set of simple questions you need to answer.

If you really are new to Unix/Linux systems, this would be good background reading: http://linux.oneandoneis2.org/LNW.htm (Linux is not Windows).

I would try some of the "Live" versions. They run from cd. My favorites are fedora, mepis, pclinux & knoppix.

Just for encouragement....

I'm "not new, but still know almost nothing"

If anyone in this forum proclaims to know everything, they are either mistaken and arrogant, or just stupid.

Welcome! May you learn much!
