Everyone, I am an Ex-USER of Linux about 20 or a few more years ago and went back to Win7 Home Premium, long story just skipping to the last part. Am now on Win7 SP1 64 bit Professional on a Dell OptiPlex 960 and want to get back into Linux. There have been some major changes and much differently setup systems, which would be a good one to download to become familiar with it again and maybe become a better user and maintainer? I am NOT a programmer just a very talented USER, self-taught and work in the Registry Files in Windows all of the time. I have learned what can be done and cannot. Have even recovered from the loss of my Administrator Account without the need to restore from a back-up. Microsoft would only tell me, "reformat, restore from a back-up or go all the way back to original install disc." Which would mean loose everything I had gained over the last six (6) years, never happen, I managed to find the problem and fixed the issue. Edited down to just what is above, just looking for someone to exchange ideas, THANK YOU for reading my request. I used Linux about 18 - 20 years ago and with what is found on your website may need some advice as to what to START with. After going through some of your Tutorials Novice and Intermediate I feel Programming is not what I need at this time, need to become familiar with an O/S first. My desktop is a Dell OptiPlex 960 64bit at present running Win7 SP1 64bit Professional with all of the latest updates available. Nothing runs in AUTOMATIC on my system, I run it and maintain it myself even checking for updates are run MANUALLY. Started working with computers on Data General 64bit mainframes using a Teletype for input and output. Primary skill is Journeyman Electronics Tech/w over 65 years experience in electronics and computers since about 1974 DG 19" mainframes moving to desktops about 1984 and learned how to use them before Windows was ever created and the WWW was not available at that time. All I know is self-taught and have never had to recover from a crash by reloading from back-up. MicroBarf is NO help what so ever.
