Linux OS for a new user

By bkkumaris4u ·
Hello users,

This question may be offtopic here, but i need your kind suggestions. I am now going to reinstall an operating system in my computer.
I had Windows 10 earlier. Now I am thinking to use Linux. I have not used it before so I have a few doubts.

Will it be difficult to use and understand Linux?
Will Linux be faster than Winodows 10?

Thanks

There is no difficult to use and understand Linux. Yes Linux is faster than Windows 10.

I moved from Windows 10 to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, I am very happy to use of Linux compared to Windows 10.

Linux

Linux is far faster than Windows. That's old news. It's why Linux runs 90 percent of the world's top 500 fastest supercomputers, while Windows runs 1 percent of them.

Linux is definitely more reliable and faster than windows.

Reliable because it is less targeted by malicious users. There is a far less chance for your pc to be infected as compared to running windows which gets targeted a lot.

Also, Linux is open-source. You do not have to pay a dime.

It's fun to use. You will get a chance to learn lots of interesting commands on different types of shells.

I would recommend starting out with Ubuntu or Linux Mint.

Linux would be better

I'ii Share my experience.
The first time I installed linux, I was intrigued by the New kind Of UI. It was different from the windows UI. Linux is not difficult to understand, If you use a Desktop environment (Linux) similar to that of Windows' like Cinnamon (for linux Mint), LXDE, LXQT. Yes, It will be difficult to get around these DEs too, but only initially. Through various tutorials (Youtube or not), you would learn to get around with these DEs.
And yes, Linux loads smoothly on my 12 year old desktop PC, even better than Windows XP does.
There is lot more to learn about Linux, just dive in.
Regards.

The distributions found here all run very well on standard PC hardware (both desktops and laptops).
These distributions are free and can be downloaded as .iso image files.
ISO images need to be to burned to either a CD/DVD or USB flash drive (This can be accomplished with a tool like Unetbootin).
All of the Linux distributions you’ll find here can be run as “live” instances (which means you can boot the operating system from the CD/DVD or flash drive and run it directly from your computer’s RAM, without installing a single thing).
