Re: Computer Help

What a great time to try ubuntu linux. ubuntu.org has a CD you can download, it will run live from the CD, so you can try it out first.

Just my 2 cents

I'll second Ubuntu. Now's the perfect time to partition your drive to dual boot. Continue to use Windows until you learn Linux.
