New again to linux


I started with Linux about 20 yeas ago, then got married and went to windows because of. Now I am back after much trouble with windows, my wife finally said go for it and I will learn on the fly. She is doing well but my research has doubled just to keep up and keep her out of trouble. Hope all will be patient with me as I struggle through. I have a lot to relearn and a lot to learn.

Hi and welcome to LQ, looking forward to your participation. Several of the popular distros have become pretty automated compared to the 'old' days. The hardware drivers have definitely become a lot easier. Any stumbles just ask and I am sure you will get some help.

So sorry About my manners I forgot to say Thank you for the welcome. It has been a breeze coming back compared to when I started. I have not had any issues and my wife loves it. She is still a little paranoid about not having anti virus software. I fell sure she will have no issues. I did get the fire starter firewall for her this morning. She has not seen that since she is a church.

Question Added another distro today

I am currently adding SUSE today it was one of my first. I am excited about moving back. I currently have 6 computers in the house and am moving all to a different distro. Would you mind suggesting a few? Ubuntu was my choice because it seemed the best and easiest to work for my wife.

Thank you I will check them all out, I am looking forward to exploring all since it has been so long. Ubuntu was so easy to come back with it should be fun working without being in a terminal window all the time.
