Screw windows, I’d not even run Linux in windows. That is just windows people panicking about losing profits and people using its system. Dual boot if you need windows and linux.

It's so sad that these people come to LQ for help now.
Some people might think it's a victory, I think we're being milked. Not by zordos, by Microsoft.

No offence to OP.

I can have my "desktop" via this "startlxde" command on what I installed and toy with the system.

I had installed Linux and a partition once and ended up having to reformat, since I lost the boot capability of Windows (I know now how to avoid it) and could not learn the Linux commands to do much of anything. So this for me is probably the safest way to try to learn it.
Your best bet is to install Linux natively on a second computer. An old computer can be great for learning Linux.
