If you're looking to get into Linux, check out Zorin OS 7
 
Here's a quick review, does it a pretty good job going over most of it.

I tried 6 before, but it wouldn't run properly on my specific set of hardware. However, I thought I'd give 7 a try and voila. Pretty sweet distro.

So basically it's like Windows 7 except Linux..... could be interesting if I find a use for Linux.

I think that the best way to learn Linux is to actually use it and learn how to use terminal and ask lots of questions.

Personally, if you want to get in to Linux install Arch Linux or Slackware. Have a laptop or smart phone open with a guide and you will feel immensely accomplished once you get it installed, all the work is done through command line and not an installer like other distros like debian and ubuntu, once you have that installed you'll have a much greater understanding of linux and you'll have no problems at all compiling apps on your own.

As an Arch Linux user since 2005/2006, I thank you for saying that
