Please answer my all the foru questions.
1) I am currently using WIN XP and i dont know anything about Linux, more than its name. I want to shift now to linux what do you recommend me?
2) Is here any userfriendly version of Linux?
3) what are the terms like BSD, Ubunto, Redhat and also Linux and many similar terms?
4) What kind of SYstem is required? (INTEL)?
Linux is very user-friendly once you learn how to use it properly - even more so than Windows.
That is, provided by "user-friendly" you mean "provides tools to help the user get the job done quickly", rather than the Microsoft version of that term that means "idiot-friendly".
For a new Linux user I would recommend Ubuntu. It doesn't require you to poke around in the internals too much. Although it doesn't come with KDE, which is the desktop I usually recommend for new users.
Thank you all for your support. I will ask more questions about my Version Selection, Please keep visiting this thread.
Thanks to all of you very much.
If I was you as a start I would get a live cd for the ubuntu distribution. A live cd basically allows you to boot your pc from a cdrom and therefore you can get to experience a linux distribution without having to install anything on your harddrive. With a live cd nothing is written to the hard drive.
Once you have played around with a few distributions and have found one you like, you can maybe make your pc dual-booted i.e. you create a partition one for XP and one for the linux distribution of your choice. currently this is the stage where I am at as I have yet to get all the applications/drivers I need to make the full switch over to linux.
Finally you can take the final leap and remove your XP partition and use only linux once you have found a linux distribution with the right look and feel, the applications, and a setup that works with your hardware.
As a newbie to linux I cant recommend Ubuntu enough, its very user friendly installation,and the online community and forums are very helpful.
Actually I knew about kubuntu already, I was trying to make the point that with most distros you get both KDE and GNOME (and others) and you can try them all out before deciding. With ubuntu/kubuntu/xubuntu you only get one.
