Hi everyone, Please, forgive my apparent ignorance; I am totally new to Linux. A brief history: I am completely disenchanted with Microsoft in general and Windows in particular, since it (or they) have crashed 2 of my computers in Win XP. I am not interested in debating the merits or demerits of Windows or Microsoft. As a result I am moving completely away from Windows and Microsoft and towards Linux. Alas, however, I am utterly ignorant vis-a-vis Linux, and I need to ask a question if I may: (1) Given the foregoing stated lack of competence, which Linux distribution would be best to utilize, ie, which would offer the smallest learning curve for now. I have just ordered Linux Mint 11 on DVD from Linux on-disk.com, but I have no qualms about ordering something else also if this is too advanced for me. Thanks, in advance, for any suggestions.
