Hello and welcome to LinuxQuestions,

We can help you out with most (if not all) questions you might have with regards to Linux, of that I'm sure since the LQ community is the best one on the internet. But you'll have to put in the work if you're interested in learning. Start by reading, trying and getting your hands dirty. When you encounter errors or problems, post your question with as much detail as possible to get a complete answer.

Looking forward to your participation in the forums. Have fun with Linux.

Kind regards,

what i would recommend would be to get a download of vmware and installing your choice of distros on a virtual machine. ubuntu is very similar to the look and feel of windows, and is very easy to pick up on, as is fedora. i prefer suse now, but it may change in a month or so. i've heard that slackware is really good, but haven't tried it. live cd's are a great way to learn as well, they boot the os to your computer without installing it. it gives you a chance to familiarize yourself before making the switch. good luck on your search for knowledge.
