Hi 23uday, I think you can try Ubuntu linux as it's installation process is generally easy to understand and its hardware driver and package (software) collection are generally up-to-date. If you want to start an experience in linux world, I suggest you to use it. Please download its installation dvd from original source... Its safer.

I dont know, i installed linux once, that is redhat, i dont know the proper version but i have to type everything in the command prompt and i just dont like it. It is not user friendly like windows. I came to know it is very secure than windows and my brother said i want to use linux thats why i installed it and now i uninstalled and currently using the same windows. thanks.

I have never used Linux before. I have always used Windows XP. It works fine for my computer.
