I was wondering which version of Linux I should download for my old computer? I was one of the unfortunate that got Windows vista. I have searched some YouTube and have seen a lot of suggestions to download Linux. I was wondering if there is a forum for my question? I am busy with taking care of my mother as I am little elderly also. So I'm not in hurry and have patience . Thanks so much for allowing me to do this!

If you're new to Linux, you better start with a distro (version) for newbies - Linux Mint.

Debbie, if you have any questions about anything Linux, this is a great place to ask them. I'm sure you'll have plenty during the install and shortly after that. So we're here to answer them for you. :)

This ole lady downloaded Ubuntu on to a DVD I booted it up but there isn't a WiFi connection. I looked under software and updates, hoping it would have something. What should I do next? I've not installed yet, just booting from DVD. It nice layout and reminds me of my Chromebook.
