Easiest Linux Distro.

by Thmiuatga In reply to Which Linux Distro Can I

There are many opinions but the easiest distro of linux to start with is Ubuntu. the other is Mint and they are both based on a distro of linux called Debian which is very popular and has massive support. if you can, get the latest release of both in a "live CD" version and download their ISO's, burn them to a DVD and try them first. you can choose to install them alongside windows as the installation program will detect your Windows OS and configure the free space on the drive so Linux will install itself alongside Windows and you can then choose Windows or Linux to boot from when you start your computer. My personal preference is to confine each OS to their own drive (I run multiple drives) so if Windows doesn't boot, you can boot into Linux and extract your data from the Windows drive.
