What exactly are you asking? Which software? Your post makes no sense as it's written. Please clarify what it is you want.

Edit: Also, do you really think it's appropriate to put an entire address in your profile? You're under no obligation to fill in the location field.

They have also included their complete address, including flat number, in their profile location... :/

As if they actually expect some one to "send" them a cd with Linux on it.

Distrowatch.com is the place to start.

LUBUNTU

is my choice, overall very good distribution,

1. download *.iso image: http://lubuntu.net/
2. use http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/ application to prepare you USB stick(so you don't have to spend money for CD'S)
3. Boot your computer from prepared USB stick and follow instructions

Good luck!

In case the OP hasn't got the message yet, that wasn't a particularly clear question.
  • You could just be asking for a version number (ok, 3.1; was that any use to you - my guess is no)
  • You could be asking for someone to send you some source code (or, compiled code, for some architecture or another); this will probably be useless to you (particularly if you get just Linux, which is a kernel and is useless for most purposes, without other stuff), but maybe you haven't worked that out yet
  • It could be that the OP is asking about some distribution, or maybe distributions in general, not knowing that there is more than one (there really are quite a few - even the excellent Distrowatch mentioned earlier doesn't cover them all); if it is a question about some particular distro, it would be nice to be given a clue as to which one and which arch, but it still won't help much; it is unlikely that anyone will put a DVD in the post for you, but you should be able to sort that problem yourself (people sell DVDs quite economically, you can download distributions, assuming some kind of 'net connection)
  • It could be that the OP actually wants some advise on which distro to use - having a look a Distrowatch (again) will help, but, ultimately, that is a question that only the OP can answer; it is possible to get help, of course, but only if it is clearer what the question actually is; maybe something like this or this would help
