Take your time and do one thing at a time with certainty.I think that at first I would like a system similar to the Windows user experience, then we will gradually enter the world of Linux and recommend it to people until I get used to it and be able to understand it and deal with it day after day This is the strategy
Lubuntu is a cool distro IMO for beginners.Pretty much everything recommended above will look familiar to a Windows user.
I like to tell those I've converted that things are generally where you'd expect to find them. Like, in the menu you'll have "Internet" and that'll be where there's a browser. If you look under Administrator, there will be things like settings.
This is pretty standard for some desktop environments. That's the bit you're likely to work with and see, the desktop environment (or DE when abbreviated). Things will be pretty much where you'd expect them to be.
As much as I love Debian, I'd avoid it as a rank beginner. There are some oddities (like setting up repos) that can be weird for a new user. I'm biased, but I'd also suggest giving Lubuntu a spin.
not uncommon for 32 bit windows to have come free as standard back then, and if you wanted 64 bit you had to pay for it.Also it seems the OP was running 32-bit Windows for the screenshot.
You have that privileged technical information but I don't.Also if you read the system report you would have spotted it has an I3-m330 cpu which is 64 bit, also making the machine a 2010/11 build, so it will be both UEFI and USB bootable [using the short boot menu [F12 at boot for a Dell]]
No, a machine of this age would have been W7 or W8 out of the box,Windows10 comes only in 64-bit doesn't it?
You may think this, but it's all to do with nearly 40 years experience of building and repairing computers [as a hobby] and over 20 years of being a full time Linux user,You have that privileged technical information but I don't.
Sorry, no. I have one of each - a 64-bit Windows 10 and a 32-bit Windows 10. Both have "C:\Windows\System\" and "C:\Windows\System32\" directories. (FYI: There is no "C:\Windows\System64\" directory on either system.)You have that privileged technical information but I don't.
I spotted a big goof from M$: "system directory: C:\Windows\system32" which is not right on 64-bit. I saw that and the OP's machine having 2GB RAM and that's why I figured it was 32-bit. But then I said to myself, wait a minute, but Windows10 comes only in 64-bit doesn't it?
